No, Chvrches’ Lauren Mayberry does not want to marry you. She wants to make sweet, sweet music for video game soundtracks instead.

On Thursday, the Mayberry-fronted electronic group released their new single, “Warning Call,” which they recorded for Electronic Arts’ PS4 and Xbox One game Mirror’s Edge Catalyst. The cut sounds as if it was lifted straight from the band’s debut album, The Bones of What You Believe, with gently layered synths backing Mayberry’s crystalline vocals over a mid-tempo beat. The group also debuted the single’s cover on Instagram.

“We were honored to be asked to contribute to the soundtrack for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst,” Chvrches guitarist/bassist Iain Cook said via a press release (as reported by Pitchfork). “The sound of Chvrches’ music resonates with the minimalist sci-fi dystopia of the Mirror’s Edge world, and we feel that the song complements the drama, emotion, and empowering themes of Faith’s story.”

Chvrches’ latest full-length album, 2015’s Every Open Eye, debuted in the top 10 of the Billboard 200, where it peaked at No. 8. That LP was also critically successful, and landed at No. 26 on EW’s Best Albums of the Year list.
