A fresh new album from Scottish indie pop trio Chvrches is coming in hot: They’ve already shared new music and a tracklist, and now, a release date: Love Is Dead will be available on May 25th via Glassnote. The band also debuted another new song today, a huge pop anthem called “My Enemy” that features The National’s Matt Berninger.
The song premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show this morning, and Chvrches singer Lauren Mayberry said that working with Berninger on the song was basically an effortless process:
“We’re all huge fans of The National and have been for a long time. They’re such a classy, classic band to me and his lyrics are amazing. He’s such a storyteller. […] I had to email him being like, ‘Honestly, no pressure’. He replied in like half an hour as like, ‘Yeah, I like it… send me the stems and I’ll do it tomorrow.’ It was the most efficient rock and roll transaction.”
