Perfume Genius udsender et nyt album den 5. maj 2017, men allerede i dag, kan du høre singlen “Slip Away” fra det kommende album.

Perfume Genius, eller Mike Hadreas, som er hans borgerlige navn, brød igennem i 2014 med albummet Too Bright, som for alvor introducerede verden til Hadreas’ eklektiske miks af kirkemusik, R&B, art pop, krautrock og soul. Nu kan vi fortælle, at kunstneren udsender sit fjerde album No Shape den 5. maj 2017 via Playground Music. Albummet er indspillet i Los Angeles, er produceret af Blake Mills og mixed af Shawn Everett.

Om albummet fortæller Hadreas: “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.”
