Christine and the Queens to cover George Michael, ‘Comme l’oiseau’ on new EP ‘Joseph’

French musician Héloïse Adelaïde Letissier is back with a new two-song EP as Christine and the Queens Joseph.

The surprise release marks their first new material since the 2020s La Vita Nuova. It consists of a cover of George Michael’s “Freedom, with Chris” and the 70s French pop classic “Comme l’oiseau”.

Christine and the Queens’ rendition of “Comme l’oiseau” is a strange and orchestral interpretation of the song. The powerful cover revolves around ambient synths, powerful harmonies and the captivating voice of Letissier. Their cover of George Michael, on the other hand, is a more melancholy and pared-down version of the song. Letissier’s brooding voice is superimposed on barbed synths and a gospel choir. Christine and the Queens really add their own twist to the often covered hit.

Listen to Christine and the Queens covers of “Comme l’oiseau” and “Freedom” below.

In February 2020, Christine and the Queens surprise released a new EP titled The vita nuova next to a short film. The short film was shot by Colin Solal Cardo and choreographed by Ryan Heffington.

It opens with Chris on the roof of the historic Opéra Garnier in Paris at the golden hour. As the short progresses, it moves through dance battle scenes with mythical creatures. Finally, Chris even sucks the blood of Caroline Polachek during their collaboration “La vita nuova”.

Later that year, in August, Christine and the Queens shared a remix EP of the collection with Polachek. The collection includes three different versions of Caroline Polachek’s track “La vita nuova” from Chris’ 2020 EP. With remixes from AG Cook, Populous and Logic1000, each track has a completely different feel. It presents the original melody in a new light.
