‘PARANOÏA, ANGELS, TRUE LOVE’ features Madonna on a host of tracks and 070 Shake, who Chris previously collaborated with on the track ‘Body’.
In a new interview with the BBC, Chris confirmed that his popstar collaborator embodies “the character of Big Eye, a very ambivalent ‘being of light’,” across the new record.
Upon announcing the new album, he said: “This new record is the second part of an operatic gesture that also encompassed 2022’s ‘Redcar les adorables étoiles’.
“Taking inspiration from the glorious dramaturgy of Tony Kushner’s iconic play, Angels in America, Redcar felt colourful and absurd like Prior sent to his insane dream-space.”
Meanwhile, Chris is the curator and headliner of this year’s Meltdown Festival 2023 at London’s Southbank Centre, which runs from Friday, June 9 until Sunday, June 18.
Earlier this month he shared the first names booked for the festival, with Sigur Rós and Django Django confirmed to headline.
Commenting on the first acts announced, he said: “Art to save the city! Ten nights that are ours. Southbank Centre filled with beloved artists, some I discovered recently, some I know are amazing performers and poets. Dance. Theatre. Words and music. Friends and future friends. Raving, hopefully. Art to save the city! To free its contours and enliven the soul – it’s the why we do what we do. I can’t effing wait.”
Elsewhere, this weekend Christine & The Queens, Arlo Parks and Loyle Carner headlined the Radio 6 Music Festival in Manchester.
