Fans of The Civil Wars who can’t quite get over their indefinite hiatus — actually, it might end up being definite considering it was due to “internal discord and irreconcilable differences of ambition” — can now hear singer-songwriter Joy Williams in the theme song for AMC’s new show Turn. Available to stream below, it’s a duet with The National‘s Matt Berninger that’s much more brooding than any wig-heavy period piece could ever hope to be.

In semi-related news, Mistaken For Strangers — the acclaimed documentary Berninger’s metalhead brother made about a year on the road with The National — is now available on iTunes. Check out its trailer right after AMC’s Turn clip…
