Rufus Wainwright is among a host of other artists taking part in ‘Together At Home’, a joint venture between Global Citizen and the World Health Organisation (WHO).
Christine and the Queens has been live streaming nightly gigs from her studio while self-isolating amid the continued coronavirus crisis. She also appeared on an episode of Charli XCX’s live stream programme.
The singer christened the album at a tiny London gig at the MOTH Club, where she was joined by ‘La Vita Nuova’ collaborator Caroline Polachek.
The Weeknd released new album ‘After Hours’ last week, which features ‘Blinding Lights’, and shared an expanded edition of the album this week.
A four-star NME review of ‘After Hours’ said: “‘After Hours’ stands as The Weeknd’s strongest record in some time, but still there’s a nagging question of what’s to come. Because once you go pop, and then back to your roots, where exactly do you go next? That’s precisely the problem The Weeknd faces with his next effort.”
