Christine And The Queens

With her new album ‘Chris’ out later this month, Christine And The Queens – real name Héloïse Letissier – is set to release a new documentary on Apple Music explaining the inspiration behind the record.

“Identity is a constant construction, you have to reassess all the time and redefine it”, she says. “‘Chris’ is actually me being comfortable in the mess”.

Earlier this year, she explained to The Times: “I invented ‘Christine’ as a survival technique to deal with many things. I felt it would save me. Then people started to listen to the album, so I thought, ‘am I going to be healed?’ But it doesn’t work like that”.

She went on: “I am more armed, but still have the same sadness. When I started to write music, I desperately wanted to relate to people. But when I became famous, I could relate less. I thought, ‘oh, am I trapped in my own creation?’ I was really lonely”.

Following a premiere in Paris on 13 Sep, the film will go live on Apple Music the next day. Watch a trailer here:
