Tegan and Sara's album The Con turns 10 this year. To help celebrate that anniversary, the duo asked a handful of close friends and musicians to rework songs off of the album. Today, CHVRCHES' contribution hit the streaming airwaves. Brace yourself—this is one heavy remix.
CHVRCHES took The Con's little acoustic number, "Call It Off," and stretched it into a five-minute synth masterpiece. It's completely engulfing; Lauren Mayberry fits snugly in the cacophony of sound and relationship pathos. "Their cover could not have been more unexpected and we think it’s beautiful,” Tegan Quin tells Entertainment Weekly. "Our hope was that each artist would reinvent and reimagine each song, and they did not disappoint!"
They truly did not.
The Con X: Covers drops October 20, with net proceeds going to the Tegan and Sara Foundation. MUNA, Sara Bareilles, Bleachers, Mykki Blanco, and more are featured.
