Earlier this week CHVRCHES gave away some major news about their next album posting an image on Twitter teasing its name and tracklisting.
This morning, the trio confirmed the album’s name Love Is Dead, announcing its release date and sharing a new song “My Enemy,” featuring Matt Berninger of The National.
“We’ve all been huge fans of the National for a long time,” said Lauren Mayberry in a statement. “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.”
