Scottish electro-pop trio CHVRCHES just dropped their new single “Get Out,” the band's first since the 2015 release of their critically acclaimed second album, Every Open Eye.
The track was produced by Greg Kurstin, and CHVRCHES said that working with him was a great experience.
“Working with Greg was so different to what we’d done before, but it also felt so comfortable and like he’d been in our band forever,” the band says.
“He doesn’t try to make you write a certain kind of song. He just listens and then Jedi puppet masters the best work out of you. The opening synth riff of ‘Get Out’ was the first thing to emerge on our first day in the studio with him.”

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.”
And after listening to “Get Out,” we're excited to hear the record in full.
