Searching For Heaven is the third and last single of Pauline Murray And The Invisible Girls, released in April 1981[1][2] on Illusive Records, and produced by Martin Hannett. It was released in 7" and 10" format single the same year, with the "The Visitor" song being included only in the last version.

The eponymous song of the single, which featured Bernard Sumner (Joy Division/New Order) on guitar, was a hit in the British indie charts. In the single, future Dead Or Alive and Sisters Of Mercy guitarist and later The Mission frontman, Wayne Hussey was also featured as guitarist, joining as member some time ago, while Vini Reilly, who played on the album, left to dedicating to his band, The Durutti Column.

After the single, the band, with Steve Hopkins as the only member of the line-up and Hannett rejoined on bass, released with John Cooper Clarke the album Zip Style Method, in 1982.
