NEW MUSIC | Christine and the Queens ‘Tilted’

Pushing boundaries in both genre and gender, Héloïse Letissier aka Christine and the Queens pairs flamboyant pop with powerful minimalism. Beyond her incredible success in her native France, she has champions in fellow artists such as Lorde, Madonna and Mark Ronson. Christine and the Queens will release her self-titled English debut album on October 23rd via Because Records.

Hailed worldwide as a visionary live artist, Christine was among the breakout stars performing at this year’s South By Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas. From there, Christine and her band served as special guests on fellow Neon Gold (her US label) recording artist Marina and The Diamonds’ west coast tour dates.

Recently named “Female Artist of the Year” at the French GRAMMY-equivalent Victoires de la Musique ceremony, Christine is already a household name in her native country. Saint Claude – which received“Music Video of the Year” honours at the Victoires de la Musique – has proven a massive worldwide hit, earning more than 14.5 million individual views thus far. In addition, Christine – the French-language version of Tilted – has drawn nearly 17 million views and counting.

Christine and the Queens came together in London where the Nantes-born Letissier went after studying art and theatre. The artist – named in honour of Christine’s cross-dressing friends at Soho’s famedMadame Jojo’s drag bar – released a series of three EPs beginning in 2011, each one earning further attention and acclaim for her utterly individual brand of French-language freak-pop. Chaleur Humaine arrived in 2014 and immediately established Christine as a phenomenon, earning close to 5x platinum certification in just over a year in France.
