Christine and the Queens and Perfume Genius Team Up On "Jonathan"

Christine and the Queens and Perfume Genius are a musical match made in heaven. Two of the most challenging, mesmerizing artists, joined together one week ahead of CATQ's debut album release for a soft electronic ode to someone named "Jonathan."

Between Perfume Genius (AKA Mike Hadreas)' achey vocals and her french coos, these two should never stop making music together. On the song, Christine and the Queens mastermind Héloïse Letissier says:

"I wrote 'Jonathan' because my lover would ignore my existence outside of the closed, silent room I lived in; it became then imperious for me to sing, just to make sure I was still here. From the start, the song had two voices; one in English, one in French - longing for an answer I knew I would never get. So it was there, on my computer, crepuscular, like my own little Mrs. Butterfly's swan song."
