Christine and the Queens announces new album featuring Madonna, 070 Shake and more

08 March 2023, 18:01 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Christine and the Queens has announced PARANOÏA, ANGELS, TRUE LOVE, his new 20-track album featuring Madonna, 070 Shake and more, and has released the lead single "To be honest".

"To be honest" is Christine and the Queens' first new single since his Redcar les adorables étoiles album arrived in November last year, and is teamed with a self-directed video.

PARANOÏA, ANGELS, TRUE LOVE is written, performed and produced by Christine and the Queens, and is co-production by Mike Dean (Lana Del Rey, Beyonce), who appears on the record alongside Madonna and 070 Shake.

Christine and the Queens says, "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."
