Earlier this week, CHVRCHES announced to fans that they would be unveiling a brand new song before the end of the week. On Wednesday (Jan. 31), the Scottish band kept their promise by releasing the music video for their brand new track “Get Out.” The almost four-minute clip features nine different surveillance-like screens projecting different images that, at first, have absolutely no connection.
The images playing on the bigger screen include video of an intersection (location unknown), someone digging a rather deep hole, the inside of what looks like a recording studio, and creepily, the inside of a bathroom. As the video goes on, it appears that the only thing tying all nine scenes together is a logo of a heart with an X drawn right through it.

“Get Out” will reportedly be featured on the group’s upcoming third studio album, though no confirmation about the new record has been given.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, CHVRCHES frontwoman Lauren Mayberry revealed that the group’s third studio album will include some of the band’s most poppy, most aggressive, and most vulnerable songs so far.
“When I listen to the record, I feel like it’s the most pop stuff we’ve done and also the most aggressive and vulnerable at the same time,” Mayberry explains to the publication. “It was about really leaning into those moments—and also wanting there to be a real humanity and character to what we’re saying.”
The impending record was produced by both CHVRCHES and Greg Kurstin.
Th yet-to-be-titled record will be the follow-up to the group’s 2015 release, Every Open Eye. The record, the band’s sophomore effort, made quite a splash in 2015, landing on a slew of music publications’ “Best Albums of 2015” lists. Every Open Eye also went on to land at the number eight spot on the Billboard 200 chart as well as earn the top spot on both the “U.S. Top Alternative Albums” chart and the “U.S. Top Rock Albums” chart.
