Some great news from the Christine and the Queens damp today, with confirmation of a new album later this year along with the announcement of live dates including shows in the USA as well as Paris and London.
A final date has not yet been confirmed for the release, but an exectuve for her record company has described it as "sounding fantastically good, it's going to be slightly different."
There are four live shows scheduled for later this year, with LA on October 27, New York on October 31 and the Eventim Apollo in London on November 20. She plays at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris on December 18.
I'd be very surprised if the shows are not accompanied by a considerable amount of promotion on TV and in the media, and I suspect these four gigs come ahead of a fuller schedule of live dates in 2019.
Tickets for her forthcoming shows go on sale on Monday.
