Scottish synth-pop favorites CHVRCHES released their new song "Miracle," taken from their forthcoming album Love Is Dead.
Not only is the track a standout, but the visually stunning music video is a memorable one, too. Warren Fu (Daft Punk, the Weeknd, the Strokes, the Killers) directed the video, which was shot in one take.
“We’re all huge fans of Warren’s work and were so excited when he agreed to be the creative director on this record,” says Lauren Mayberry. “We met him when he directed the video for our song 'Clearest Blue,' and it’s so cool to see the world you imagined come to life through his work.”

CHVRCHES' third LP, Love Is Dead, is set to be released May 25. It's currently available for preorder here.
On their new record, frontwoman Lauren Mayberry says it's some of the most pop, most aggressive and most vulnerable songs they've done.
"When I listen to the record, I feel like it’s the most pop stuff we’ve done and also the most aggressive and vulnerable at the same time," Mayberry tells Entertainment Weekly. "It was about really leaning into those moments—and also wanting there to be a real humanity and character to what we’re saying."
