Chvrches have been playing a new song at their shows over the past few weeks, and they played it again at this weekend’s Austin City Limits. The song has showed up on their setlists under the names “Richard Pryor,” “Gene Wilder,” and “Eddie Murphy,” but band member Iain Cook indicated on Twitter that it’s just a working title. Cook recently talked to Classic Pop magazine (via NME) about their sophomore album: “We’re not going to put out anything we aren’t happy with. That could take four months, it could take two years. It’s too early to talk about new songs, because nothing is finished. We do most of our work in the studio together – it’s fine for one person to come up with something, but it’s not a Chvrches song until it’s been bounced back and forth between the three of us.” The new song doesn’t sound that far removed from what was on The Bones Of What You Believe.
