Christine And The Queens Drops New Music Video for “Comme Si”
- Last November, French singer-songwriter Christine and the Queens released her sophomore studio album “Chris” with English and French versions.
From the album, four singles were released last year.
On April 11th, she unveiled a new music video for “Comme Si” from the album. Directed by David Wilson, the floral video was shot in Thailand and features Christine in a meadow by a river. It was written by Christine And The Queens.
“In Hamlet, Ophelia is, of course, the unlucky lover, the rejected one; but her madness and the suicide that ensues is also symptomatic of a whole era: the young girl, unwanted, unloved, simply cannot live,” Christine explained in a statement. “Looking at Millais’ painting, and thinking of ‘Comme si’ as this erotic reverie of subverting rejection with self-empowerment, I started to dream of giving that myth a welcomed, witty twist. Let’s undo that tragic ending; let’s cheat death, if you will.”
Christine And The Queens performed at Coachella 2019 last weekend, she will appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on April 16th.
- She said of the song, “I’m always thinking about the shape of an album, and the opening is a chance to stage the entry of the hero and how he or she wants to appear. “Comme si” is a carnal call for sensuality and a call to dissolve as a way to exist and mend. It’s also a love song to the pop song format that changed my life, because with music I got to be who I wanted to be. During the process of the first album I discovered that I was really enjoying the sensuality in performing and absorbing music and just becoming a voice.”
