Christine And The Queens teases ‘sweatier’ new sounds for second album

The follow-up to ‘Chaleur Humaine’ is coming

Christine And The Queens is teasing “sweatier” sounds as we edge ever closer to her upcoming second album. Check out the posts below.

Last month, the French star announced that she’ll make her live return in the US this October – with shows scheduled for Los Angeles and New York. In November, two gigs will take place at London’s Eventim Apollo.

The artist – real name Héloïse Letissier – announced the dates on Twitter, sharing a poster with the “-tine And The Queens” part of her stage name scrawled out by neon green.

Letissier hasn’t performed live since appearing at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Hull last May.

Now, with new material incoming, the singer has taken to Twitter to give more insight into her new music. Sharing a brief, silent clip of herself twisting her arms around, Christine captioned the intriguing post: “New sounds are even more sweatier”.

Earlier this week, Letissier posted “I’m ready soon”, along with a studio shot of her behind a mixing desk.

Speaking of LP 2’s theme last year, Letissier told NME that the follow-up to ‘Chaleur Humaine’ will be “sweaty, more sexual and tougher”.

“I’ve been writing since it was out, so I do have many songs now and I have to choose,” the star said. “It’s not really difficult though, because I know where I want to make Christine go. I know where she’s going to be, who she’s going to be, who she’s going to be in love with and what she will be angry for.”

The singer continued: “I can’t really tell much, because then that would spoil the fun –  but it will definitely be more sweaty and tougher. Maybe more high-tempo, but still really sad because I’m just me and I’m just sad deep down, but I’ll be properly able to dance on it all the time.”
