After spending most of 2013 dazzling us with tracks from their Recover EP and debut album The Bones of What You Believe, Glasgow synth-pop trio Chvrches have more new music to share. The band recorded a cover (and a short one at that) of Bauhaus’ signature 1979 single “Bela Lugosi’s Dead.” The song is featured on the soundtrack of upcoming film Vampire Academy, which is out Feb. 7.
The soundtrack is out Feb. 4, and also features Sky Ferreira, Goldfrapp, Bear In Heaven, Au Revoir Simone and, uh, Katy Perry. Listen to Chvrches’ “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” below.
