Christine and the Queens - The Walker
Christine and the Queens today debuts the video for 'The walker,' the new single to be lifted from her highly acclaimed second album, Chris.
The single follows her recent, rapturously received performances of '5 dollars' on BBC1's Graham Norton Show and 'Comme si' on CBS' Late Show with Stephen Colbert . She will also appear on BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge Month on November 21. 'The walker' is directed by Colin Solal Cardo, who also directed the videos for '5 dollars' and 'Doesn't matter'.
"It is about the audacity of someone wounded. By exposing the wounds you can hurl yourself against violence before you are killed by it," said Chris of 'The walker' during her YouTube In Conversation event with Solal Cardo. "The joy of working with Chris is that we get to explore these different universes and aesthetics," adds the director of the video. "I've always loved to explore different cinematic universes and so when I get to explore and pay homage to movies that I love, and tell stories in a different way."
