Christine and the Queens (aka Héloïse Letissier and her amazing dancers) is releasing her sophomore album, Chris, on September 21 via Because Music. Now she has stopped by the BBC Live Lounge to do a session where she covers Maroon 5's "What Lovers Do," as well as performing her recent single "Girlfriend." Watch videos of both below, followed by Christine and the Queens' upcoming tour dates.

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. Then she 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)." There will be both English language and French language versions of the album, with the French one having an extra track.

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 a previous 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 added: "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."
