There’s been a Coeur de Pirate-shaped hole in my heart, and Héloïse Letissier, a.k.a. Christine And The Queens, is here to fill it up.
Christine is gearing up to explode stateside with new English track “Tilted” off the Saint Claude EP, out on 4/14. She recently won the Victoires de La Musique awards for Best Female Artist and Video of the Year last month. First France, now the rest of the world!
The lyric video premiered via Noisey with the site revealing that Madonna gave a visual tribute to the Sainte Claude album art in her “Living for Love” Grammy performance by draping from wire work at the close–that has a little more meaning than my mother’s assessment that “she’s supposed to be dead or something.”
Not only will Christine and The Queens grace us with this EP–her album Chaleur Humaine will see an English version later in the year from Neon Gold / Because / Atlantic. In the meantime, the effortlessly cool chanteuse will be busy on the SXSW circuit in Austin. If you can’t get to the festival, enjoy the suited-up silhouette video and chill effusiveness of “Tilted.”
