Scottish trio covered Christmas track on BBC's Live Lounge
Chvrches have covered East 17’s ‘Stay Another Day’ – watch it above.
The Scottish trio performed the boyband’s Christmas single during their turn on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge. The track, which was originally released in 1994, went on to become that year’s Christmas Number One and was the only chart-topping track in East 17’s career.
Chvrches are set to play a special Christmas charity gig at Glasgow’s SWG3 on December 21. The show, which is being put on by the feminist collective TYCI set up by singer Lauren Mayberry, will feature supporting DJ sets from Pretty Ugly and Sons And Daughters’ Adele Bethel. Proceeds from the event will go to the charity The AT Society – for more information, see Tyci.org.uk.
The band are also set to tour the UK in March next year. They will play:
Dublin Academy (March 5, 2014)
Newcastle Academy (March 7)
Glasgow Barrowland (March 8)
Leeds Met Uni (March 9)
Birmingham Institute (March 10)
Cambridge Junction (March 12)
