    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.

    Throughout, the EP is marked by Letissier’s vocal and songwriting cool — even when the tempos are faster and the energy level is high, there’s a certain effortless ease to her singing and the music.

    Confined to merely six tracks, the ‘La vita nuova’ EP feels like it ends too soon - and that’s entirely symptomatic of how strong the songwriting is. In 2020, Christine is still truly in a league of her own.

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

    La Vita Nuova is a fine complement to the Chris era.

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

    Her imagistic writing remains spare as ever, making a game of revealing concealed emotion by rendering it in multiple languages.

I'm a firm believer that art comes in many different forms from everywhere and I wouldn't deny, even for a second, that this is purely a work of art. It's shocking to be reminded that art like this is still being made and that it can be appreciated by many. This is a piece of art that shows truth, honesty, and reality in art in the mainstream through expressive dance and communicating with your body. It shocked me because although I've liked what Christine has had to offer in the past, this shows her growth as an artist in a way that's borderline incomprehensible, as it seems to be timeless and infinitely inspiring on a deep, deep personal level.
    This feels like some sort of cultural reset in the form of art.
    Caroline Polachek came to serve.
    i'm beginning to get Bowie vibes from Chris –I say this as a compliment.

    Are you kidding me.
    That's the end of the creative road for Christine. Take the title people I've been sad.
    Isn't she already think herself as
    Are you kidding me.
    That's the end of the creative road for Christine. Take the title people I've been sad.
    Isn't she already think herself as someone worth talking about? Like someone should care. I think Fame cuts wings of the middle take stars. These are cut.
