Cam Releases Christine And The Queens Cover

LifeInASong_UK

Today, GRAMMY-nominated Country singer/songwriter CAM released a cover of Christine and the Queens’ “La Marcheuse,” via RCA Records. For her rendition, CAM stripped down the electronics-heavy song to a few key instruments and put her soft, stunning vocals at the forefront. The song also features CAM singing entirely in French for the first time. “La Marcheuse” is available on all DSP’s now HERE.

“I’ve been in awe of Christine and the Queens – the art and theater of what Chris is doing right now pushes people to reflect on vulnerability and strength, and the gender associations that color those concepts for us. Which resonates deeply with me, and feels within arms reach of the darkness and light I’ve been exploring to create my upcoming album,” says CAM. “This will be my first time playing my own music in Paris – last time I performed there was in stained-glass chapels and stone-walled cathedrals with a children’s choir when I was 13. With every visit since, the city of Paris manages to etch a new stripe of wonder across my mind. To be playing my own show in that city and participate in such a grand cultural tradition of art … honestly it only feels right that I give an offering before I get there.”

The track was recorded at Tyler Johnson’s Cave Studio in Nashville, TN with band members Walle Wahlgren (drums/percussion), Simon Mårtensson (banjo, guitar and piano) and Alex Balderston (synth bass). It was produced, engineered and mixed by Jokke Pettersson and mastered by Dale Becker.

Later this month, CAM will embark on her European “Oh, The Places We’ll Go!Tour. The tour will kick off on August 31st in Millport, UK and will visit 10 cities across Europe before wrapping up in Berlin, Germany on September 14th. Tickets are on sale now at CamCountry.com.

SINGLE REVIEW: Kip Moore - 'She's Mine'

Isn’t it a wonderful thing when expectation and reality collide in a song. When Kip Moore began teasing earlier in the week that some new music was on the way, a whole subset of the internet began to get those tingles and feels!! After all, new music from one of […]
