A couple days ago, Christine And The Queens took to the Eiffel Tower (well, right in front of it) in Paris and performed a five-song set, as part of a Global Citizen Live benefit concert. Her set featured a pair of covers, Michel Fugain and Le Big Bazar’s “Comme l’oiseau” and George Michael’s “Freedom,” and now she has shared studio recordings of those covers in a surprise new EP, Joseph.
Additionally, while not included on the EP, her set also featured performances of some of her own songs: “People, I’ve Been Sad,” “Tilted,” and “Doesn’t Matter.”
She also took to Instagram to share a message about her performance and the EP, writing (partially in French), “Thank you to [Global Citizen] for having us perform yesterday. [I missed you so much. Thank you for everything you give me when I search with my eyes closed.] The EP gathering the two Joseph bird songs is out and all profits will go to [Global Citizen] — little by little, more light. Upgrade is king upgrade. Upgrade is love flow. See you soon my loves.”
This comes a couple months after Christine And The Queens declared she was taking a break, sharing a poetic message about her planned hiatus of an undisclosed length.
