About the remix, Lauv says,” "I've been a fan of CHVRCHES since back when I was in college, so I was stoked to have them do the ‘Drugs & The Internet’ remix!"
Remixes are a rare commodity from CHVRCHES these days and their reworking of “Drugs & The Internet” is their first since 2013. The band are currently touring in support of their latest album Love Is Dead and return to North America in June and July for a run of headline shows before a huge summer of global festivals. Their recent collaboration with Marshmello “Here With Me” has been streamed 200 million times.
The release of “Drugs & The Internet” marked the first release from the singers highly anticipated debut album titled ~how i'm feeling~, which will see him continuously rolling out singles before its release. The video, directed by Jenna Marsh (Nicki Minaj, Kanye West) sees Lauv getting pulled from reality into a digital universe. He gets trapped and loses himself to the overwhelming stimulus of a world where the internet gets brought to life. Click here to watch!
