Chvrches have announced plans to release a new EP Hansa Session on Friday, November 16. It will feature five tracks, all of which are re-worked versions of tracks off their latest album Love Is Dead. The tracks on the EP will feature the addition of acoustic and string quartet arrangements.
"When we had the opportunity to record at Hansa we jumped at it even though we were in the middle of a hectic tour," said the Scottish band's Iain Cook. "It is such hallowed ground for me - my heroes Bowie, Depeche, Iggy, Siouxsie, Tangerine Dream, Nick Cave amongst others made arguably their best work in that building - and we hoped that when we went there, we would capture even just a tiny bit of that energy," he added.
"It was also a chance to hold a mirror up to these five songs and look at them from a different angle, and that is something that you don't always get the chance to do as an artist," according to Cook.
In Lauren Mayberry's opinion, it was really fun to try to reinterpret the songs and still communicate the messages and emotions with different arrangements.
Hansa Session EP Track List:
01. "Graffiti" 02. "Miracle" 03. "Get Out" 04. "Heaven/Hell" 05. "Really Gone"
