Perfume Genius has announced his new album, 'Set My Heart On Fire Immediately'.
Due for release on 15th May via Matador, news of the record arrives alongside teaser track 'Describe'.
“It started as a really somber ballad," says Mike Hadreas of the track. "It was very minimal and very slow. And then it turned into this beast of a song. I started writing about when you are in such a dark place that you don't even remember what goodness is or what anything feels like. And so, the idea was having someone describe that to you, because you forgot or can’t get to it.”
Its accompanying video, self-directed by Hadreas, envisions “an end of the world where there are no boundaries, there are no edges, no rules, or the rules are completely new with how you interact with each other and the space around you."
