If you remembered that John Paul White and Joy Williams had announced they were taking a hiatus last year, the news of a new digital EP from The Civil Wars might make you scratch your head. But this cover of Elliott Smith's "Between the Bars," which lends its name to the EP, was actually recorded a while back with producers Rick Rubin and Charlie Peacock.

The Civil Wars cover of "Between the Bars" was released as part of a four-song vinyl EP last fall, almost exactly 10 years after Smith's sad and untimely death at the age of 34. Other songs include Portishead's "Sour Times," Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" and The Romantics' "Talking in Your Sleep." - From NPR's All Songs Considered blog
