- CHVRCHES Premieres New Song “My Enemy” featuring Matt Berninger
- Scottish synth-pop band CHVRCHES has delivered a new song “My Enemy”. The song received its first play during Apple Beats 1 with Zane Lowe.
The band teamed up with Matt Berninger of The National on the new song. This marks the first time that the group has worked with another artist on a studio track. It was written by Lauren Mayberry, Martin Doherty, Iain Cook and Matt Berninger.
The track is the second single off following "Get Out" of their upcoming third studio album "Love Is Dead", which is set to be released on May 25, 2018.
About the song, CHVRCHES vocalist Lauren Mayberry said:
"We've all been huge fans of The National for a long time. 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 realize 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."
- She told Zane Lowe about the new album, "coming to terms with the fact that there are great things in the world and there are awful things in the world and that you can’t get one without the other." Iain Cook added, "We’re fucked, the world is fucked. But there’s an ellipses at the end. It’s Love Is Dead. Like, how did we get to this point? And how do we move on from this point? It’s Love Is Dead, we’re fucked, what’s next?"
