Christine and the Queens to release her new album in 2018

The collection "has a slightly different feel to it" say her record label.

It looks like we don't have long to wait until Christine and the Queens releases her new album.

Fresh from her 2016 debut album Chaleur Humaine, the French singer-songwriter - real name Héloïse Letissier - is prepping her new record for release later in 2018, according to Nick Huggett, chief creative officer of Christine's record label Because Music UK.

Speaking to Music Week about the label's acts such as Christine, Major Lazer and Little Dragon, Nick explained that 2018 will be a huge year for Christine and the Queens: "It [the new album] sounds fantastic, it's got a slightly different feel to it. We hope she will be even more successful this time."

Topping her debut album will take some achieving considering its huge success. Peaking at Number 2, Chaleur Humaine spent 11 weeks in the Official Albums Chart Top 10 and spawned the Top 20 single Tilted. Christine came to prominence following breakout live performances at Glastonbury and on Later with Jools Holland. 

With sales of 219,000, Chaleur Humaine was the best-selling debut album of 2016 in the UK, and has been certified Gold by the British Phonographic Industry. 

In addition to new music, Christine and the Queens has announced a world tour for late 2018, where she will perform two shows in the US, one at London's Eventim Apollo, and an arena date in France. 

Christine rocks an androgynous look in the tour poster, and will seemingly be referred to as 'Chris' for this campaign, with the 'tine and the Queens' section of her name scribbled out in neon green.
