Joy Williams, best known as a member of duo the Civil Wars, revealed that she is currently in the studio working on a solo project. “Started recording a solo album yesterday,” she wrote on social media. “Butterflies. Bittersweet. Mostly Sweet.” She also gave a brief video preview of her music to her more than 40,000 followers.

Williams also revealed that she has been writing with Matt Morris (aka Teo Bishop), who has penned songs for Christina Aguilera, Cher, Justin Timberlake, Reba McEntire and Kelly Clarkson.

Williams first released a solo self-titled Christian pop project in 2001, followed by By Surprise (2002), Genesis (2005), Every Moment (2006), One of Those Days (2009) and many others.

In 2012, the Civil Wars canceled tour dates, leading to persistent rumors that the duo has broken up. The duo released a self-titled project in 2013.
