Rough Trade's Albums of the Month - October
Billingual, compelling upbeat second from modern day pop star Christine and the Queens
This is the second album from Héloïse Letissier and it’s available in French or English. It was produced in Paris and LA and is written, arranged and performed by Christine and The Queens. These are songs celebrating Christine’s polysexual desire without sidelining her emotional pain. Rigid irresistible disco beats commanding a dancing rhythm reaction from feet and minds swaying while sultry pop vocals swoop and glide garnished by divine harmonies. Super slick funked up moody beats make subtle shifts and gyrate in spriallying song of desire and pain.
Christine and The Queens release her eagerly anticipated second album. Titled Chris, the record is released by Because Music, including double CD and vinyl versions, as well as limited edition boxset, There are two versions of the album; one sung exclusively in English and one sung exclusively in French. Chris was written, arranged and performed by Christine and the Queens. It is the follow up to her already-iconic debut record Chaleur Humaine, released to near-universal acclaim in France in 2014 and the UK in 2016, and selling more than 1.3 million copies to date.
