I feel blessed to have come across a clean recording of Chvrches' version of Prince’s messianic “I Would Die 4 You.” I was blown away the first time I heard this cover years ago on Soundcloud. It’s such a perfect rendition of a groundbreaking song. There is no video of the actual in-studio performance of this track, so the YouTuber who posted this substituted a montage of concert footage. It is heavily centered on front woman Lauren Mayberry (I barely saw the dudes in the band), but it’s a nice collection of clips and syncs up pretty well with the audio.
This is my favorite cover Churches has done, and they’ve got quite a few to choose from.
