Christine and the Queens to tour in support of debut LP (2015)

Today, Christine and the Queens’ self-titled debut album is revealed early via Hype Machine HERE. The critically acclaimed album is free to share till Friday October 16 when it’ll be released physically and digitally via Neon Gold / Because Music / Atlantic Records The album debut comes right at the start of her major 16-date North-American tour with Marina and The Diamonds which will go through California, Portland, Canada, Seattle, Salt Lake City, Denver, and end with 3 New York shows; two at Terminal 5 and a solo headline show at Webster Hall.  Last week, “Jonathan” featuring the amazing Perfume Genius was shared HERE. Perfume Genius says: “I’m proud to play a small part in a project of such vision and heart. I believe in Christine and the Queens.”
Christine and the Queens made her North American EP debut earlier this year with the Saint Claude EP, highlighted by the international hit singles “Saint Claude” and“Tilted.” The latter track – hailed by VICE’s Noisey as “lithe, perfectly parsed pop” – comes accompanied by a unique video, streaming at Christine’s official YouTube channel HERE.
Hailed worldwide as a visionary live artist, Christine was among the breakout stars performing at this year’s South By South West (SXSW) in Austin, Texas. From there, Christine and her band served as special guests on fellow Neon Gold recording artist Marina and The Diamonds’ west coast tour dates.   Recently named “Female Artist of the Year” at the French GRAMMY-equivalent Victoires de la Musique ceremony, Christine is already a household name in her native country. “Saint Claude” – which received “Music Video of the Year” honors at the Victoires de la Musique – has proven a massive worldwide hit, earning more than 13 million individual views thus far HERE.
In addition, “Christine” HERE – the French-language version of “Tilted” HERE – has drawn nearly 14 million views and counting.   Christine and the Queens came together in London where the Nantes-born Letissier went after studying art and theatre. The artist – named in honor of Christine’s cross-dressing friends at Soho’s famed Madame Jojo’s drag bar – released a series of three EPs beginning in 2011, each one earning further attention and acclaim for her utterly individual brand of French-language freak-pop. Chaleur Humaine arrived in 2014 and immediately established Christine as a phenomenon, earning over 5x platinum certification in just over a year.
