Watch: Perfume Genius shares self-directed video for new track ‘Describe,’ announces new album ‘Set My Heart on Fire Immediately’

'Set My Heart on Fire Immediately' drops on May 15

Perfume Genius has announced a new album called Set My Heart on Fire Immediately, which drops on May 15th. As part of the announcement, he’s shared a self-directed video for his new track “Describe.”

The album’s lead single sees Mike Hadreas playing with distorted, ominous sounds, slide guitar, and visual-heavy lyricism that’s powerful in its simplicity. The new record, which marks the follow-up to 2017’s No Shape, explores the concept of masculinity and completely subverts it.

“I wanted to feel more open, more free and spiritually wild,” Hadreas explains. “And I’m in a place now where those feelings are very close – but it can border on being unhinged. I wrote these songs as a way to be more patient, more considered – to pull at all these chaotic threads hovering around me and weave them in to something warm, thoughtful and comforting.”
