CHICAGO (AP) — The original version of “Come With Me Now” by Kongos was more of a bluegrass song, according to bassist Dylan Kongos.

He says there also was a long bridge that keyboardist Johnny Kongos took out and used in the song “Take Me Back.”

That’s not the only song that needed time to evolve. Drummer Jesse Kongos says he struggled for years with the lyrics to their new single, “I’m Only Joking.” The African drums were only a small part of that song, too. Jesse Kongos says their mother came into the studio and said, “I want to hear those drums the whole song,” so they tried it and did it her way.
