Chvrches drop “Get Out” a day after they teased the new song. This is the Scottish trio’s first new song since 2015’s Every Open Eye. For “Get Out,” Chvrches worked with hit-maker Greg Kurstin, who is behind heavyweights like Adele and most recently won a Grammy for Producer of the Year, his second straight.
“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 said in a statement to Pitchfork. “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.”
Accompanying the audio for “Get Out” is a YouTube video that briefly shows a phone number that is connected to the audio of Chvrches singer Lauren Mayberry reading a few lines that appear to be song lyrics. The number is 1-800-674-3364. Also, The National’s Matt Berninger appears in the video, teasing something called “Friend Or Foe.” There isn’t any information surrounding the phone number or the sign that was shared.
