In a new chat with Entertainment Weekly, the band's Lauren Mayberry described their third record as "the most pop stuff we’ve done and also the most aggressive and vulnerable at the same time."
Chrvches have been working with producer Greg Kurstin (Sia, Adele) on the album, which is maybe/hopefully out next year - they recently announced "the first show of CHV3".
"He’s done such big pop records, but they’ve always got a bit of saltiness in them,” Mayberry says of Kurstin's involvement. "He pushed what we were doing to be bigger in some ways, but he also pushed us to be weirder. He’d be like, ‘If the vocal melodies are as sweet and as precise as this, why don’t we make these other sounds so fucked up and gnarly and strange?’ I loved that."
