Christine And The Queens has shared his latest single ‘Tears Can Be So Soft’.

The track is taken from his forthcoming album ‘PARANOÏA, ANGELS, TRUE LOVE’ which is slated for release on 9th June via Because Music.

On the inspiration behind the single, Chris says: “Tears can be so soft was born out of the marriage of a Marvin Gaye sample that caught my attention, this intoxicating, elegant, almost poised in its melancholy string arrangement.” Chris wanted a sound that would create “this deep sense of almost womb-like, hypnotic space where the voice could soar in its loneliness,” an “interplay between the suffering that motivates tears and the gentle healing effect they can have.”

Christine and the Queens will curate Meltdown Festival at London’s Southbank Centre between 9th-18th June 2023, and give two headline performances on both days of the finale weekend (both now sold out). He will also be performing at a number of festivals worldwide, including headline slots at Glastonbury Festival and Wilderness Festival, alongside numerous others, before returning to the UK in the autumn for a run of headline shows.

Accompanying the single is a video directed by Chris, which you can check out here:
