Perfume Genius unveils a magical cover of Mazzy Star’s ‘Fade Into You’

Perfume Genius has unveiled a stunning cover of Mazzy Star’s ‘Fade Into You’

A goosebump-lighting masterclass, the cover has been released by Perfume Genius for Pride Month, available to download/stream through Amazon Music

Speaking about the cover, Perfume Genius explains: “I chose ‘Fade Into You’ because I carried it with me for a long time and I always looked to it for the warmth and the very heavy vibe that it always brings. It felt almost uncoverable but I wondered what I could do to make it sharper and maybe a little more desperate but still maintain the sort of beauty of it and the quietness of it.”

The cover comes just a month on from the release of Perfume Genius’ latest album ‘Set My Heart On Fire Immediately’. Another glorious step from a modern day genius (see what we did there…), we caught up on all of it in our recent chat - which you can read online now

Check out ‘Fade Into You’ below:
