We didn't quite take the opportunity to write about CHVRCHES' storming 2018 hit 'Miracle' but this rather unexpected new rendition has presented the perfect chance for redemption, as the band teamed up with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra for a specially commissioned film launching the new BBC Scotland channel. Watch the short (entitled 'Beginning') below, alongside the original version of 'Miracle'.

This orchestral take on 'Miracle' places greater lyrical emphasis on the anthemic track, as Lauren Mayberry's vocals navigate the bombastic arrangements created in conjunction with conductor Paul Campbell. Director Oscar Sansom's sweepingly shot short film matches the nature of the instrumentation, accompanied by striking visuals. With Iain Cook describing the orchestral experience as "spine-tingling", we certainly hope that a full concert collaboration is in the works.
