Christine and the Queens today releases Comme si Remixes – a collection of five reinterpretations of her latest single by Honey Dijon, EASYFUN, Fred Again (AKA Fred Gibson), Steffi and Casey MQ. New York-via-Chicago DJ Honey Dijon is one of the hottest names in electronic music and she delivers a dance floor ready remix inspired by her hometown’s 90s house sound; PC Music’s EASYFUN turns in a an alternative take on “Comme si” fresh from the success of his work with Rita Ora’s on her hit “Let You Love Me” and Charli XCX’s acclaimed Pop 2; meanwhile, Dutch-born Panorama Bar resident Steffi, young Canadian producer du jour Casey MQ and rising hitmaker Fred Again (George Ezra, Rita Ora, Clean Bandit) each contribute daring takes on an already iconic track, the latest to be lifted from Christine and the Queens’ critically acclaimed second album Chris.
The release of Comme si Remixes comes as Christine and the Queens is announced to perform at Coachella, opens forFlorence + The Machine in America, will return to Glastonbury Festival 2019, plus she is already announced as a headline act at All Points East Festival, taking place in London in May.
