Christine and the Queens Announces New Album, Shares Video: Watch

Paranoïa, Angels, True Love features contributions from Madonna, Mike Dean, and 070 Shake

Christine and the Queens will release a new album, Paranoïa, Angels, True Love, on June 9. His follow-up to last year’s Redcar les adorables étoiles (prologue) features guest spots from Madonna and 070 Shake and production from Mike Dean. Watch a video for the single “To Be Honest,” shot by Chris himself, below.

Chris said in a press release: “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.”
