Christine and the Queens presents 'La vita nuova' (EP & short film)

Following her unexpected new single ‘People, I’ve been sad’ in February, Christine and the Queens releases a brand new EP, La vita nuova - a prospect for a new life.

Produced by Christine and the Queens and Ash Workman, the EP is out now on all digital platforms via Because Music, and available to pre-order on CD and vinyl editions (due for release 10 April).

La vita nuova arrives with an accompanying short film of the same name, imagined by Christine and featuring the EP’s five new songs in as many sequences. The 14 minute film is an inward journey that sees the artist invest Opéra Garnier, the world famous Paris opera house, filling it with stories of ghosts and mythical creatures. Through the lens of long-time collaborator Colin Solal Cardo (Robyn, Charli XCX) and with choreography by Ryan Heffington (VMA Award 2014, Grammy Award nominated), Christine and her dancers appear in succession on the Opéra rooftop, its grand stage and most secret recesses, culminating into a feverish moment with Caroline Polachek, a collaborator on the EP’s title track.

La vita nuova follows 18 months of live shows, collaborations and international distinctions, around the release of Christine and the Queens’ breathtaking second album. Chris was written, arranged, produced and performed by Christine and the Queens, and charted at #3 in the official UK album chart; it has been certified silver in the UK. Chris is the follow up to her already-iconic debut record Chaleur Humaine, released to near-universal acclaim in France in 2014 and the UK in 2016, and selling more than 1.4 million copies worldwide to date. Most recently, Christine and the Queens collaborated with Charli XCX on the acclaimed single ‘Gone,’ released last autumn and a mainstay of 2019’s end of year lists.

Chris and its acclaimed songs made multiple 2018 year-end lists and was named Album of the Year by The Guardian, The Independent, iPaper, Evening Standard and Clash Magazine; the record’s lead single ‘Girlfriend’ was Track Of The Year in Time Magazine, Dazed and MOJO. It was also featured by, amongst others, The Sunday Times, Daily Telegraph, The Observer, Q, Uncut, Pitchfork, Noisey, The FADER, Crack & The Line of Best Fit. Christine and the Queens received her second nomination for International Female Solo Artist at the BRIT Awards 2019, was named Q Icon at the Q Awards 2019 and won the Artist Award at the Attitude Awards 2019. She starred in numerous artist, album and song of the decade lists by Pitchfork, NME, Consequence of Sound, Paste & more.
