Conceptually, ‘La Vita Nuova’ is an astonishing feat – but even better than that, it also oozes an intensity of feeling that punches right in the gut.


La vita nuova sounds like a collection of essentials for a soon-to-be prolific artist.


A rich, rewarding, and extremely direct return, one worth observing on its own terms.

Spectrum Culture

The EP insists that Chris is no mere pop artist, since she comes to the table with both the refinement and the mythos of a pop star. It could very well presage a turning point for Letissier, a sharp and sudden push towards expanded international public consciousness.


The singer and producer’s dazzling new EP is a subtle gesture about grace and interiority and the illusion of effortlessness, the same attributes that mark Chris as a true star.

It is once again apparent that he has some special things going on with Christine and The Queen, which also explains why "Christine"'s music is exported unlike that of his compatriots. So it's true that the language barrier is not really an obstacle here and plays its role, because the songs have been in several language versions, either it's mixed, but it's also because musically and artistically Christine & The Queen is really solid.

This is so much better than Chris. Instead of having French and English versions of each song she just picks what’s best for the song and here we have a very solid 6-track ep. love it! This time in even more languages but whatever!
I understand where people who thought Christine was overrated on her last project came from, but this ep is stellar and an improvement in all fronts for Christine, in my opinion. People i've been sad it's easily my favorite of the year so far. Looking forward to everything Christine is dropoing from now on.
the production on Christine's music is always fire. good project
that album cover?? a visual ep?? a caroline polacheck collab AND singing in italian? wow she is serving i'm so here for this
