‘Miracle’ was premiered as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on Radio 1 last night (10th April), and follows first single ‘Get Out’, ‘My Enemy’ (featuring none other than The National’s Matt Berninger), and most recently ‘Never Say Die’.
Chvrches front the April issue of DIY, out now, where we talk with the band about their move Stateside to write and record the album, and working with mega-producer Greg Kurstin.
“I’m on the record [in interviews] all over the place saying we would never co-write with anyone,” the band’s Martin Doherty admitted to us, “because I totally believed it at the time.” After speed-dating a few producers - with mixed results - the band instantly clicked with Greg. “It’s best to date before you get married. Maybe this metaphor extends,” he grins, “but it was three albums in before we were willing to sleep with somebody.”
