Christine and the Queens

La Vita Nuova


Following on from her unexpected single ‘People, I’ve been sad’, Christine and the Queens unveils a surprise new EP. La vita nuova - a prospect for a new life - which draws strength from extreme vulnerability and was produced by Christine and the Queens and Ash Workman. 

La vita nuova arrives with an accompanying short film of the same name, imagined by Christine and featuring the EP’s five 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.
