Following the release of their third album Love Is Dead, CHVRCHES are set to release a new EP Hansa Session later this week.
During their European tour, the Scottish indie rock band were given time to record at Hansa Studios in Germany.
So excited to finally get to share this with you ? The Hansa Session EP, featuring reworked stripped back versions of tracks from Love Is Dead, is out digitally this Friday.

“When we had the opportunity to record at Hansa we jumped at it even though we were in the middle of a hectic tour,” band member Iain Cook explained according to Clash. “It is such hallowed ground for me – my heroes Bowie, Depeche, Iggy, Siouxsie, Tangerine Dream, Nick Cave amongst others made arguably their best work in that building – and we hoped that when we went there, we would capture even just a tiny bit of that energy.”
The Hansa Session EP will feature new versions of “Graffiti,” “Miracle,” “Get Out,” “Heaven/Hell,” and “Really Gone.” The album is set for digital release on November 16th, with a limited edition 10-inch vinyl dropping December 14th.
