Perfume Genius

Reveals New Single 'Go Ahead'

Over Twitter Q+A Session
New album, No Shape
Out May 5th on Matador / Rhythmethod

This morning, in the middle of a Twitter Q&A, Mike Hadreas, aka Perfume Genius, dropped the second song from his forthcoming album. “Go Ahead” is restrained and defiant. No Shape is out May 5 on Matador via Rhythmethod in New Zealand.

Perfume Genius’s 2014 breakout album Too Bright— featuring seismic anthem ‘Queen’ — marked a musical and performative leap that sounds unlike anything before or since. With his new songs, Hadreas goes even further, merging church music, makeout music, R&B, art pop, krautrock, and queer soul into his take on stadium anthems, completing the journey from critically acclaimed underground hero to fully fledged pop auteur.

No Shape was recorded in Los Angeles, produced by Blake Mills, mixed by Shawn Everett. 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.”
