Christine and the Queens / Chris

French and English language versions • six-disc box set

Christine and the Queens will release a new album, Chris, in September.

This is the follow-up to the brilliant Chaleur Humaine (issued in France in 2014 and the UK in 2016) and the new album is available in English and French language versions.

Girlfriend from the album was performed on BBC TV’s Later… with Jools Holland last month.

In terms of physical formats, a two CD set features both language variants, while there are two separate gatefold vinyl 2LP+CD sets in French and English. The final physical format is a limited and numbered box set which collects both 2LP vinyl sets and both CDs. This box comes with two posters and the vinyl records inside feature an exclusive alternate album cover.

Chris is released on 21 September 2018

    I stood in the snow after her last Glasgow waiting to see her leave the gig, the last night of her world tour.
    But after waiting another hour one her dancers finally came out to say, “She left an hour ago”.
    They dragged a metal barrier and I said that’s her leaving, she can’t be arse with even a Hi, Bye, must go.
    One guy was so furious he Eff’d & blinded as he disappeared up the road saying that he was off home to smash her records up !
    Err, the audience was at least 70% female…what did she think was gonna happen ?
    ‘Live’ she was just about ok, at best but not worth all wall-to-wall press coverage she got.
    Her fans seem to worship her every move so there no dissension in the ranks and this will probably sell too.
    Funny though that some limited edition cd/dvd of the 1st album was selling for silly prices on-line while FOPP were selling them off for £15 !

  2. Carl says:

    Priced to sell , others should take note.

  3. Larry Davis says:

    Loved the first album immensely…happy it came out in the US…on Atlantic… And I love the ‘Gitlfriend’ single…she performed it on US TV…late night with Jimmy Fallon a month or so ago…as for the formats, I was going to just settle for the 2CD edition…happy both versions are being released in the same package…last prime I saw that was with Tokio Hotel…English and German versions in same release…anyhoo I was going to just settle for the 2CD…BUT if the boxset is cheap enough, i may go for the full box!! Will see.

  4. Frenchy Eric says:

    French hype for young people between 14 and 35
    Knows no one around me, friends/collegues/family, listening to her music
    Will probably not stay in memories

  5. George says:

    Love Christine and the Queens, odd comments above relating to her name, she is introduced on French tv as Christine and the Queens, this is the artistic name and often when interviewed her own name is used. Nothing odd in that at all. She is very popular here in France, simply because she is brilliant, witty, intelligent, artistic and creative. Personally, I am not a fan of the new single, it focuses too much on the dance routines but I’ve yet to listen to on the hi fi, yes folks I still have a hi fi.

  6. Rob Deighton says:

    Love the 80s vibe on ‘Girlfriend’

  7. Shaun Hey says:

    Thanks Paul, box set ordered. For anyone else thinking of ordering the Amazon price is starting to creep up its now £34.99.

  8. poptones says:

    Never been a fan of Christine & The Queens but she’s pretty huge in France. She’s called Christine or Chris on french television but her real name is Héloïse Letissier and she’s 30.

    She’s scheduled to play at Accor Hotels Arena (equivalent to London’s O2 arena) in Paris in december. The first gig is already sold out (capacity : 20,300) so they added another date. She’s that succesful in France.

    • Trash says:

      Same here –
      Currently living in Paris although my home is London and it seems to be impossible to escape Heloise/Chris/Christine and the Queens (what’s up with all the names?) here in France.

      Definitely would not have considered myself a fan (in fact I find her videos irritating for some reason – I really don’t know why) BUT BUT BUT the single Girlfriend is an excellent piece of pp and I will have to (begrudgingly) give her new album a listen – I’m prepared to be persuaded :-)

  9. Daniel says:

    PS…just ordered the ltd box from Amz UK… after VAT is removed and postage is added, total was 31.70 GBP to the US!!!

  10. fitzysbuna says:

    looks like Johnny Depp!

  11. Daniel says:

    The 2 songs released are great! Going to see the US tour in Nov!!!!!!

  12. Eamonn says:

    Chris or Michelle Jackson?

  13. Dan says:

    I love her new song Girlfriend. I’ve ordered the box set from amazon, it’s much cheaper than I saw it on record store.co.uk the other day.

  14. elliott buckingham says:

    a great bargain if you are into this band. im a great believer that for the price we pay for vinyl a cd copy rather than a mp3 code should always be included

    • Craig B says:

      Just an observation but I can never understand why you Vinylites want a CD and / or an MP3 included at all. I thought the whole point was to appreciate the supposed superior quality of said Vinyl.

      • Paul Sinclair says:

        CDs are handy for the car etc.

        • Frenchy Eric says:

          Yes Paul for people of our age we prefer the CD sound too
          I even like cassettes better for the dynamic sound
          But all new cars like mine do not have cd players
          I hate USB keys for the flat and compressed sound and blutooth because you always have to reconnect your cellular therefore in my car i listen now to the radio…

      • Trash says:

        Unfortunately as much as I love vinyl it is not very convenient for listening to music on the tube. Hence needing to rip stuff to my iPod classic. Ripping from CD is easier than from vinyl….

      • So Craig, I assume that you only play your CDs at home, and buy a digital version, or stream it when you’re out and about? Of course not… you rip the CD like any normal person would.

        Therefore, a download code, or CD allows vinyl users to experience the music in all the same ways as a CD user :-)

        And vinyl audio quality isn’t ‘superior’, it is different in a pleasing way :-)

      • Dan says:

        Isn’t it a good thing that people embrace multiple formats? They all have their pros and cons.
