Chvrches release a re-recording of their latest album Every Open Eye ‘s big-hit “Bury It“, which features Hayley Williams of Paramore.
Chvrches and Williams have linked up on stage before, but no studio releases have come from it until now. Chvrches and Hayley Williams were first seen performing “Bury It” together at a Nashville event. More recently, Chvrches and Williams performed “Bury It” live on the Parahoy! cruise.
Hayley Williams describes performing “Bury It” with Chvrches, “It’s been the coolest getting to know Chvrches after having been a fan of the band for a while. When they came to Nashville last year and we talked about hanging at their show, on the inside I was like, “Please please ask me to sing with you” Ha! I did end up getting to go on stage and sing with them and I even got to sing a verse to my favorite song off their new album. I feel like Lauren and I really worked well together on the song, vocally… I was surprised how natural it felt! ‘Bury It’ has such good energy and I really relate to it emotionally as well. When they asked me to record the parts I had sung live with them, it was a no-brainer. Anytime I’ve worked on music outside of Paramore, it’s always been something I really truly connect with and this time is no different. I’m super honored to work with Chvrches, to know them, and to be a part of the life of this song.”
Lauren Mayberry of Chvrches has also commented on working with Williams, “We are all big fans of Paramore – musically, and in terms of the ethos of the band and the way they connect with their fanbase – but I also hugely admire Hayley as a vocalist and lyricist. It always feels like she puts so much of herself into her music and that’s something we aspire to as well. Hayley is such a unique voice and having her be a part of something CHVRCHES wrote is incredibly exciting.”
Chvrches is currently on a joint summer tour with Death Cab For Cutie. The band has been on the road spreading word on their new album Every Open Eye. In this album, Chvrches has stepped further into the pop music genre that shows through their three standout songs on the album, “Never Ending Circle”, “Leave a Trace”, and “Clearest Blue”. All three offering fans a mix of synth’s, vocal effects, and the same energy that Chvrches is known for.
Fan’s can now listen to the newly released studio version of “Bury It” (below).
