Chvrches perform new song ‘Richard Pryor’ – listen

The band played the tentatively-titled track at Austin City Limits festival

Chvrches played a new song with a working title of ‘Richard Pryor’ at Austin City Limits festival this weekend – scroll down to listen.

The track has also appeared on the band’s recent setlists under alternative working titles ‘Eddie Murphy’ and ‘Gene Wilder’, however a finalised name for the song – the first new track to be debuted since the release of 2013’s ‘The Bones Of What You Believe’ – is yet to be confirmed.

Despite showcasing the new offering live, keyboardist Iain Cook recently said that “nothing is finished” yet for the Scottish trio’s second record.

Continuing to speak about their progress for the record, Cook also revealed that it could take “four months or two years” to finish. “You often see bands with a successful debut who get cocky, so they hash out something sub-standard and nobody gives a shit again. So we’re not over-confident, but pressure can work against you too. We’re not going to put out anything we aren’t happy with. That could take four months, it could take two years,” he said.

‘The Bones Of What You Believe’ was released in September 2013 and reached Number Nine on the UK album chart.
