Meanwhile, Christine & The Queens has been busy offering up a number of home performances during her time in lockdown. Earlier this month she sang recent single ‘People, I’ve Been Sad’ from the window of her Paris residence, before taking part in the new quarantine-adapted Later… with Jools Holland series.
In April, Letissier spoke to NME about how her plans to promote her ‘La vita nuova’ EP had been affected by the pandemic. “I was going to do some American TV, stick around in LA and do some sessions with musicians,” she explained.
“I decided to take this [the lockdown] as a sign to write a lot on my own first instead. It feels a lot like the usual process when I start a new album. The mindset is different, because on my third album I’m looking for something very vast and hopeful.”
