Christine and the QueensBecause
La Vita Nuova
Released: 19th June 2020
Following her unexpected new single ‘People, I’ve been sad’ earlier this month, Christine and the Queens has unveiled a surprise new EP. La vita
nuova - a prospect for a new life - draws strength from extreme vulnerability. 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.
