Track: Christine & The Queens Shares New Single & Video

Christine & the Queens

Christine and the Queens has released a new single, ‘Tears can be so soft’, from his forthcoming album ‘PARANOÏA, ANGELS, TRUE LOVE’ – out June 9th via Because Music. The new album is written, performed, and produced by Christine and the Queens, with co-production by Mike Dean (Lana Del Rey, Beyonce). The album will feature guest appearances from powerhouses Madonna and 070 Shake.

“’Tears can be so soft’ was born out of the marriage of a Marvin Gaye sample that caught my attention, this intoxicating, elegant, almost poised in its melancholy string arrangement.”


Chris wanted a sound that would create “this deep sense of almost womb-like, hypnotic space where the voice could soar in its loneliness,” an “interplay between the suffering that motivates tears and the gentle healing effect they can have.”

Christine and the Queens recently performed two electrifying sets at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and a sold-out show at The Fonda Theater in Los Angeles. Christine and the Queens is in the midst of an international tour which includes headlining shows in cities like San Francisco and London as well as festivals like Primavera in Barcelona and Madrid, Roskilde in Denmark and C6 Fest in Brazil.
