Christine and The Queens covers Travis Scott’s ‘Highest In The Room’
Christine and The Queens has shared her cover of Travis Scott’s ‘Highest In The Room’ through social media.
Héloïse Letissier’s captioned the cover “the morning after 4/20” which gave fans a not-so-subtle insight into her reasoning behind covering Scott’s ‘Highest In The Room’. What makes her version even more incredible is when she switches it up and starts performing in her native French tongue halfway through the track.
Last weekend, she took part in the One World: Together At Home livestream, performing two tracks from La Vita Nuova being ‘People, I’ve Been Sad’ and ‘Mountains (we met)’ as well as taking to cover Steve Lacy‘s ‘N Side’ in March and a version of The Weeknd‘s ‘Blinding Lights’.
Letissier recently released a six-track EP titled La Vita Nuova and is spending her time in isolation efficiently working on finishing the writing of her third record and treating fans to live streams to give them their adequate Christine and The Queens fix.
Speaking to NME about the EP and how current circumstances have changed her plans, she said: “I was going to do some American TV, stick around in LA and do some sessions with musicians. I decided to take this [the lockdown] as a sign to write a lot on my own first instead.
“It feels a lot like the usual process when I start a new album. The mindset is different, because on my third album I’m looking for something very vast and hopeful.”
