Chvrches announce new LP, share “My Enemy” ft. Matt Berninger
Synthpop trio Chvrches have announced details of their new album which is titled Love is Dead and will be out May 25 via Glassnote. Greg Kurstin (member of The Bird & the Bee and a hitmaker with Adele, Sia, and more) co-produced nine of the 13 tracks. They’ve just shared new single “My Enemy” which is a duet with The National’s Matt Berninger. Says singer Lauren Mayberrry:
We had played a few festivals together but really got to know Matt when we were involved in 7 Inches For Planned Parenthood, a fundraising and awareness campaign that he spearheaded. It’s really inspiring and reassuring to meet other artists you admire and realise that they are trying to do some good in the world. We kept in touch after that and, when it came time to record “My Enemy,” Iain and Martin suggested I email Matt to see if he’d like to sing on it. We never realistically thought he’d have time to do it but he replied right away and recorded the track at his house the next day.
You can listen to that, and their song “Get Out” from earlier this year — and check out artwork and tracklist — below.
Chvrches play the Sunday of the 2018 Governors Ball in NYC, with Eminem, N.E.R.D., Sylvan Esso, Dirty Projectors and more.
