Watch Chvrches Peform ‘Leave a Trace’ + Justin Bieber’s ‘What Do You Mean?’
Chvrches’ sophomore effort, Every Open Eye, will arrive later this week, and before then, the Scottish synth-pop outfit stopped by BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge to perform the forthcoming album’s lead single, “Leave a Trace,” as well as a cover of Justin Bieber’s chart-topping hit, “What Do You Mean?”
You can check out the latter cover above by skipping ahead to the 2:05 mark. Watch Chvrches' performance of “Leave a Trace” at the bottom of the page, which starts at 0:50.
Every Open Eye is due out Friday (Sept. 25) via Universal following Chvrches’ 2013 debut, The Bones of What You Believe. The forthcoming LP is currently streaming in full over at NPR. You can also check out the lyric videos for “Never Ending Circles” and “Clearest Blue.”

They have headlining gigs planned through November, culminating with a performance at Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, which runs from Nov. 6-8. Get ticket information at the band’s website.
