VIDEO: Perfume Genius – “Wreath” + Tour Dates

Today Perfume Genius released a video for No Shape track “Wreath”. The video features footage from a contest asking fans to submit themselves dancing to the song. The winning entry, from Esperanza Kroger—dancing freely in
the streets of Cholula, Mexico—can be seen here. After teasing other great entries from throughout the week, the video is finally here.

Mike has said the song is partly about feeling betrayed by his physical body and wanting to be freed from it. The album title is taken from the lyrics — “I wanna hover with no shape…I wanna peel off every weight” — and his goal with the contest and video was to encourage the same sense of ecstatic freedom and abandon that he felt in the studio.

Check out the other videos from No Shape: “Slip Away” and “Die 4 U”.

Perfume Genius will be on the road throughout this Fall, opening for The xx for several dates and headlining a tour of his own.

Perfume Genius x Song Exploder x Google VR

Song Exploder had an episode back in May that focused on No Shape‘s first single “Slip Away.” Mike Hadreas, Blake Mills and Shawn Everett went in deep. Google has taken the dissection of the song to a whole new level…

Perfume Genius – Spotify Singles Session Out Now, Fall Tour begins 9/27 in Santa Barbara

For those who have been able to see Perfume Genius live since the release of No Shape, you might find his cover of Mary Margaret O’Hara’s “Body’s In Trouble” familiar. It has been known to pop up in the set from time to time. Here’s what Mike Hadreas has to say about the song he has chosen to cover over and over:

I started covering this song on tour almost immediately after hearing it for the first time. I was so struck by her command and presence even though she weaves in and out of being present. Her vocal is somehow on the rhythm and completely around it, lyrics and chords are repeated throughout but there is no real center. There are brief moments where the music fully connects in a traditional way but after a few listens the most satisfying part is the song’s magic formlessness. I wouldn’t dare try to mimic or recapture her performance, but I tried to sing in the same wandering, mantra-like way – but taking it somewhere a little more sinister. I’ve lost count of how many times I use the word “body” in my songs.

My relationship with my own body is confusing and I use music to try and puzzle it out, or as rebellion against needing a form at all. Playing this cover onstage every night I use her lyric to phase in and out of both of those ideas.

The Single Session also includes “Slip Away” which was also recorded live at Spotify’s Studio in NYC.

Perfume Genius – ‘No Shape’ coming May 5, “Slip Away” Video Premiere Via The Fader

“Slip Away”, directed by Andrew Thomas Huang


(photo by Inez and Vinoodh)

Perfume Genius, nom de poster+wraith of musician Mike Hadreas, will release his fourth album, ‘No Shape’, May 5 on Matador Records. The album was recorded in Los Angeles, produced by Blake Mills, mixed by Shawn Everett.

The video for the first single, “Slip Away,” was directed by longtime Bjork collaborator Andrew Thomas Huang  and is co-presented by The Fader, whose current Perfume Genius cover story is a peek into his mindset upon completing the album in January.

Perfume Genius’s 2014 breakout album ‘Too Bright’—called “awe-inspiring, magnificent” by NPR—marked a musical and performative leap that sounds unlike anything before or since. With his new songs, he goes even further, merging church music, makeout music, R&B, art pop, krautrock, and queer soul into his take on stadium anthems.

Of the album, Hadreas says: “I pay my rent. I’m approaching health. The things that are bothering me personally now are less clear, more confusing. I don’t think I really figured them out with these songs. There’s something freeing about how I don’t have it figured out. Unpacking little morsels, magnifying my discomfort, wading through buried harm, laughing at or digging in to the embarrassing drama of it all. I may never come out the other side but it’s invigorating to try and hopefully, ultimately helpful. I think a lot of them are about trying to be happy in the face of whatever bullshit I created for myself or how horrible everything and everyone is.”

In a bio for the album, writer Choire Sicha says, “God is all around actually and some of these songs are about being equal and some are about the witchcraft of believing. This is church music the same way Prince’s Black Album is — too dirty. It’s femme art pop the way Kate Bush’s The Dreaming is — too scary.”
