French singer songwriter Christine and the Queens, known for her smash hit single ‘Saint Claude‘, is back with a vengeance this week with the release of the official video for her new single ‘Paradis Perdus‘ (Paradise Lost), and it is gorgeous.
The video was directed by J.A.C.K., who also directed Christine and the Queens ‘Saint Claude‘, and stars a gorgeous pink Jacquemus pants suit that is alternately a bit too small and then much, much too big.
As Christine told Vogue, “The pink suit is the real protagonist of the video. It had to grow. To be alive. It had to make me feel too old and then too young, too little and then too big. I’m lost in it.”
As for ‘Paradis Perdus‘, the song is lovely — mellow, poignant and quite, quite sad. And the vocals of Christine, aka Héloïse Letissier, are beautiful.
Watch Christine and the Queens’ official video for ‘Paradis Perdus’ below.
And, of course, pick up Christine and the Queens’ debut album now, if you love it. Because this singer is going to be huge.
