The band performed ‘Belinda Says’ from their latest album ‘Blue Rev‘, ahead of their US tour in March.

The song, which is a homage to eighties singer Belinda Carlisle’s hit song, ‘Heaven Is A Place On Earth’, was performed with a string section on the show.

Later, Carlisle tweeted about the performance saying she had “no idea” about the song before their appearance on the show.

The musician tweeted: “First of all I [love] the song and I had no idea about this! This is awesome and I’m so flattered @alvvaysband.”
