Christine and the Queens (aka Héloïse Letissier and her amazing dancers) has announced her sophomore album, Chris, and shared a video for a new song, "Doesn't Matter," as well as a video for a French version of the song, "Doesn't Matter (voleur de soleil)." Chris is due out September 21 via Because Music. There will be both English language and French language versions of the album, with the French one having an extra track. Check out both "Doesn't Matter" videos below, followed by the album's tracklist and cover art, as well Christine and the Queens' upcoming tour dates.

Colin Solal Cardo directed the video, which features Letissier and one of her dancers in a grown over parking lot. A press release says that "Doesn't Matter" "wrestles with a higher power in order to reach a driving and powerful incantation of soothing hope against mounting misery." 

Letissier had this to say about "Doesn't Matter" in the press release. "It's a crisis song that I wrote late one night. This song is a cathedral, with a rhythm as unalterable as white stone. The bass line, I remember playing it for hours, as if to rock myself."

Back in May Christine and the Queens shared a new song, "Girlfriend" (which features Dâm-Funk), as well as a French version of the song, titled "Damn, dis-moi." She got a lot of mileage out of that song. It was one of our Songs of the Week, there was also a video for the song, she performed the song on Later... with Jools Holland, and also performed it on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (with The Roots and Dâm-Funk). "Girlfriend" is included on Chris.

Christine and the Queens made waves in her native France with her 2014 debut album, Chaleur Humaine. A more English language version of the album, simply titled Christine and the Queens, was released in America (and other English speaking countries) in 2015 via Because Music.

In the press release Letissier compared her first and second albums: "Chaleur Humaine was about teenage years, most of it. Loneliness, really true feelings, and there is a softness in the way I wrote as well, because I was properly introducing myself." With Chris, she says "it gets to be a bit more exhilarating, because I get to say, 'Okay, I've been introduced now.' I get to be more confident, and it matches what happened in my life as a woman."

Letissier adds: "The second album could have been me finding a fancy producer in LA and doing the pop shit, but actually, no. I wanted to make it even more personal, if it's possible."
