Following on from the release of his highly-praised LP 'Redcar les adorables étoiles' last year, Christine & The Queens has now announced his plans for a new studio album, arriving later this year.
The new full-length 'PARANOÏA, ANGELS, TRUE LOVE' will include guest appearances from 070 Shake and Madonna, is being previewed by the new lead single 'To be honest', and is set to be released on the 9th June via Because Music.
Speaking about the new release, he said, “This new record is the second part of an operatic gesture that also encompassed 2022’s Redcar les adorables étoiles. Taking inspiration from the glorious dramaturgy of Tony Kushner’s iconic play, Angels in America, Redcar felt colourful and absurd like Prior sent to his insane dream-space. The follow-up PARANOÏA, ANGELS, TRUE LOVE is a key towards heart-opening transformation, a prayer towards the self - the one that breathes through all the loves it is made of. Prior’s real agony in Angels in America is a deep, painful becoming, a shedding of all waters and memories, that then allows angels to immerse deep too, and offer back profound, narrative-altering love - a rest in true love.”
