Chvrches are back with a new song, ‘Over’ – check it out below.
The track, which the band has been teasing for the last couple of weeks, is their first new song for over a year. They then shared the lyrics for the song, saying that it serves as “a brief reprieve from the horrors of CHV4 [their fourth album, 2021’s ‘Screen Violence’]”, adding: “We finished a new song and couldn’t wait to share it with you.”
Now, the Scottish trio have said of ‘Over’: “’Over’ is a song that we wrote with Oscar Holter, a producer we really respect and admire. Normally we collect songs over the course of months (or years!) until we have an album’s worth of material, but this time we just wanted to release something we were excited about and give the fans something new to mark the end of the ‘Screen Violence’ era, and the start of whatever the next CHVRCHES chapter might be.”
Holter has previously worked with Charli XCX, BTS and Coldplay, the latter of whom Chvrches will be supporting at nine stadium shows in Brazil next month.

Last summer, NME asked Chvrches if fans could expect any new material in the near future. “Not at present!” Mayberry responded. “We’re touring a bunch and doing mostly that for the rest of the year, and then who knows? I think we’ll figure that out as we get to it.”
The band went on to hint at potential plans to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their debut album, 2013’s ‘The Bones Of What You Believe’. “We talk about it in the pub,” Mayberry told NME. “We haven’t put anything into action yet.”
Chvrches were recently spotted hanging out with video game designer Hideo Kojima, leading many fans to speculate that they could be involved with the soundtrack to Death Stranding 2. The trio were behind the title track to Kojima’s 2019 game Death Stranding.
