Christine and the Queens Release CHRIS, Plus Fall Tour

Christine and The Queens today releases her already highly acclaimed second album, Chris. Featuring the singles"Girlfriend", which she performed live with Dâm-Funk and The Roots on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon HERE and "5 dollars," and available in English and French language versions, Chris is available in digital and physical formats, including double CD and vinyl versions, as well as limited edition box sets, courtesy of Because Music.


Chris was written, arranged and performed by Christine and the Queens. She discusses the album here with New York Times, NPR World Cafe and Pitchfork Song By Song for instance, and it is the follow up to her already-iconic debut record Chaleur Humaine / Christine and the Queens, released to near-universal acclaim in France in 2014 and the UK in 2016, and selling more than 1.3 million copies to date.

"Chaleur Humaine was about teenage years, most of it," says Christine."Loneliness, really true feelings, and there is a softness in the way I wrote as well, because I was properly introducing myself."

Chris arrives on different terms. "It gets to be a bit more exhilarating, because I get to say, okay, I've been introduced now. I get to be more confident, and it matches what happened in my life as a woman."

She says the first record turned her from a reclusive, bookish young woman writing for herself into "an athlete performer, which is something I always wanted to live, but it happened. Then suddenly I'm out in the open and I'm having more experiences, meeting people, having relationships, and stories are happening to me. All of a sudden, you're a real grownass woman."

"The second album could have been me finding a fancy producer in LA and doing the pop shit," she laughs, "but actually, no. I wanted to make it even more personal, if it's possible."
