The Scottish electronic band Chvrches took a break from working on its next album to cover Justin Timberlake’s 2002 hit “Cry Me a River” at BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge studios Thursday morning. The group’s lead vocalist Lauren Mayberry takes on the role of the former *NSYNC star.

Twitter fans already love the band’s rendition of the break-up classic:

Chvrches just covered Cry Me A River // Justin Timberlake in the live lounge and I don't think I've heard a better cover in my life
