The Civil Wars Reveal Lost Footage in Dust to Dust Video

(Radio.com) John Paul White and Joy Williams of the Civil Wars join forces once again, if only briefly, for their new video "Dust to Dust." The video uses lost footage from the duo's trip to Paris in March 2011, allowing fans to envision the duo back together, if only for three minutes.

"Dust to Dust" begins with a slow bass beat as the Paris skyline is seen in the background. Meanwhile, White is alone in a cafe penning a letter to a long lost love with a cup of espresso by his side. Williams soon enters the video and is spotted also sitting by herself at a bar sipping on a glass of red wine. Clips from the studio are captured in the video while shots of the duo being tourists in Paris and performing on sidewalks merge, making it look like the band never broke up.

"When we re-discovered what we'd once thought to be lost footage from two years ago, these forgotten images from a trip to Paris strangely seemed fitting for the feel of 'Dust to Dust,'" Williams said in a statement. "For me, it's like stepping back in time."

Last year, Williams let the music world know that the duo weren't speaking before they released their sophomore album, The Civil Wars. more on this story
