Scottish electro-pop trio CHVRCHES released a new album, Love Is Dead, back in May via Glassnote. Now they have stopped by Australia's Triple J radio station to take part in their Like a Version series where a band does a cover version. Their choice: Kendrick Lamar's "LOVE." from his Pulitzer Prize winning DAMN. album. Watch the performance below.  

Previously CHVRCHES shared Love Is Dead's first four singles, "Get Out" (which was our #1 Song of the Week), "My Enemy" (which features the guest vocals of Matt Berninger of The National and EL VY and was also one of our Songs of the Week), the ultra shiny "Never Say Die" (which was once again one of our Songs of the Week), and "Miracle" (as well as a science fiction-themed video for "Miracle").

CHVRCHES also previously did an acoustic set of three songs at the New York studio Power Station in partnership with Honda where they covered Beyoncé's "XO" and also did acoustic versions of "Get Out" and "The Mother We Share" (from their debut album). They also covered The 1975's "Somebody Else" for BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge.

Greg Kurstin (Adele, Tegan and Sara) co-produced nine of the album's 13 songs and Steve Mac produced one song, "Miracle." CHVRCHES are Lauren Mayberry, Iain Cook, and Martin Doherty.

CHVRCHES released their well-received second album, Every Open Eye, in 2015 via Glassnote (it was #9 on Under the Radar's Top 100 Albums of 2015 list). In 2017 they guest starred in the comic book series The Archies and covered Tegan and Sara's "Call It Off" for their The Con X: The Covers album.

CHVRCHES were on the cover of one of our print issues in 2015 and you can read the in-depth 8-page 5,600-word cover story feature on the band here. You can also read our bonus digital magazine Q&A with them here.
