Héloïse Letissier has unveiled a new Christine And The Queens single.

People, I’ve Been Sad has been premiered with a live performance video recorded at Colors Studios, the first slice of new material since Letissier – after 2014’s debut album Chaleur humaine – introduced the bold new character Chris on the Girlfriend single and her second Christine And The Queens album in 2018.

“The song is like a story you tell to your friends,” she said of the track at the time. “Chris is the gang leader, the kind of person you look for and listen to; he does what he wants, perched up high somewhere, dangling above the emptiness.”

“The first album was born out of the frustration of being an aberration in society, because I was a young queer woman,” she went on to tell Apple Music. “The second was really born out of the aberration I was becoming, which was a powerful woman—being lustful and horny and sometimes angry, and craving for this will to just own everything a bit more and apologise a bit less.”
