Christine and the Queens Reinvent Kanye West’s ‘Heartless’ on New Track, ‘Paradis Perdus’
The subtle, longing track appears on her upcoming record, due out later this month
Christine and the Queens, Héloïse Letissier’s gender-defying, cross-medium music group, just dropped a new track that’s especially intriguing, even for her. Parts of “Paradis Perdus,” the moody, atmospheric new track off of her upcoming self-titled LP, sound very familiar, as much of it is a “reinterpretation” of Kanye West’s “Heartless.” She weaves slick, aching lines from ‘Ye’s pleading track amidst parts of and the French artist Christophe’s “Paradis Perdus.” The fascinating result is not quite a cover, as Letissier owns the distinct-sounding mashup. Stream it here, and look for Christine and the Queens on October 16.
