It was revealed earlier this year that Christine and the Queens (aka Héloïse Letissier) is planning to release her sophomore album this year, and while details on that are still TBA, she did just release a new single. It's called "Girlfriend," it's a collaboration with Dam-Funk, and it's the closest to disco that Christine & the Queens have ever come. Letissier said, "I initially set out to smash against macho culture and macho men. I became obsessed with this idea of the macho man, and still being a woman. What does it mean if I’m this figure, and I’m a woman? Does it make me an aberration? Is it joyful?" There's also a French version of the song titled "Damn, dis-moi," and you can listen to both below.

Christine & the Queens are touring this year, including two Brooklyn Steel shows. All dates are listed below.
