Listen to CHVRCHES take on Tegan and Sara for "The Con X" covers album

Warner Bros. Records CHVRCHES have shared their cover of the Tegan and Sara song "Call It Off," which the Scottish trio recorded for the forthcoming The Con X: Covers compilation. You can listen to the cover now via EW.com.

For their take on the song, CHVRCHES turned a two-minute acoustic track into five minutes of dreamy, haunting synths.

"Their cover could not have been more unexpected and we think it's beautiful," Tegan tells Entertainment Weekly.  "We are massive fans of CHVRCHES and the music they make," Tegan adds. "[Frontwoman] Lauren [Mayberry] is an ally to the LGBTQ community and has been outspoken and political, so she fit the ethos of the project perfectly. CHVRCHES are in the studio making a new record, so we were touched they made the time to cover 'Call It Off.'"

The Con X: Covers features 14 artists covering each song from Tegan and Sara's 2007 album, The Con, in honor of its 10th anniversary. The compilation, which also features Bleachers and Paramore's Hayley Williams, will be released October 20.
