New video: Christine and The Queens – 5 Dollars

Last week, Christine and The Queens released ‘5 dollars,’ the latest single to be lifted from her forthcoming, eagerly anticipated second album, Chris. Premiered by Annie Mac as her Hottest Record on BBC Radio 1 the song arrives accompanied by a powerful video, directed by Colin Solal Cardo, who directed the video for ‘Doesn’t matter,’ released last month to critical acclaim.

The song is so tender, so disheveled,” explains Christine. “It’s dealing with some kind of love – the kind you can buy. It’s a literal interpretation. A note for a shag – how surprisingly soothing this can be! The power ratio runs clear, like water in your hands; it becomes a pure gesture of love, of ultimate consent.”
