Second album 'Every Open Eye' will be released on September 25
Synth-pop trio Chvrches have aired a new single from their forthcoming second album.
The Glasgow band recently confirmed details of the new LP, which will be titled ‘Every Open Eye’. Following on from 2013’s ‘The Bones Of What You Believe’, the record will be released on September 25.
New single ‘Never Ending Circles’ premiered on Zane Lowe’s new Beats 1 radio show earlier today (August 12). It was then made available online with an accompanying lyric video, which you can see below.
Speaking to NME earlier this year, band member Martin Doherty discussed their plans for the new LP, including the trio’s desire to make it “leaner” than ‘The Bones Of What You Believe’.
“I think we’ll use fewer instruments but ultimately try and do more with them,” Doherty said. “When you listen to a Michael Jackson song or a Prince song, you realise there’s absolutely nothing in it but an amazing bassline, drums and singing. We want to channel some of that.”
New single ‘Never Ending Circles’ follows on from ‘Leave No Trace’. Read the NME review of ‘Leave No Trace’ here.
