CHVRCHES Recruit Paramore’s Hayley Williams For New Single “Bury It”

Synthpop band CHVRCHES released their second album, Every Open Eye, in September last year. Following singles like “Leave A Trace” and “Clearest Blue,” their latest single is an updated version “Bury It.” Although the original album recording is all sung by CHVRCHES frontwoman Lauren Mayberry, the reworked single version now features Paramore’s Hayley Williams as well. Lauren sings the first verse before Hayley comes in on the second verse. The two singers sound amazing together, and the collaboration is definitely worth a listen.

“Bury It” also comes with a new lyric video. It features a drawing of Hayley alongside the CHVRCHES trio. Check out the single and lyric video below:

This is just Hayley’s latest of many collaborations. Last year she appeared on a re-recorded version New Found Glory’s “Vicious Love” (her husband is in the band). She and Paramore also reworked their song “Hate To See Your Heartbreak” for a re-release of their album Paramore; they added in singer Joy Williams (who, despite the last name, is not related to Hayley). In terms of pop collaborations, Hayley co-wrote and sang on Zedd’s 2013 single “Stay The Night,” and sang the chorus of B.o.B’s 2010 hit “Airplanes.” 

Paramore is currently working on their 5th studio album, the follow-up to their 2013 self-titled release. The band is now down to just two members, and the duo will likely record for the rest of the year. A new album should be ready by 2017. You can read up on all we know about it so far here.

You can buy CHVRCHES’ latest album, Every Open Eye, on iTunes now and get the original version of “Bury It” as well as the band’s previous five singles. The new version of the single featuring Hayley is also available for purchase and streaming as well. You can also keep enjoying the lyric video above.
