NEWS: CHVRCHES and Hayley Williams unveil new video for ‘Bury It’

Glaswegian electro-pop trio CHVRCHES announced they’d be releasing a special edition of their second album Every Open Eye on 29th July.  The new edition will feature a special contribution from Paramore’s Hayley Williams, who adds her talents to a new version of ‘Bury It.’  The audio has been in circulation for a little while, but now the reworked track has a video to accompany it, directed by frequent CHVRCHES collaborator Jamie McKelvie and animated by Mighty Nice.

Ian Cook of CHVRCHES said: “Ever since Jamie McKelvie began working with us on CHVRCHES poster designs, we have been discussing ways in which we could further our creative relationship.  His work on comics such as Phonogram, Young Avengers and most recently The Wicked + The Divine have cemented his reputation as one of the most unique and exciting artists.”

McKelvie himself stated: “Music has always had a big influence on my work, and making a music video seemed like a natural progression of that.  Getting the opportunity to work on this video with such great collaborators – CHVRCHES, Hayley Williams, and Mighty Nice – meant the reality turned out even better than I’d imagined.”
