Mike Hadreas has shared a self-directed video for his new track as Perfume Genius, “On the Floor.”
“A crush can really live on its own, separate from you and the person you are pining for,” Hadreas explains of the new track. “The fantasy feels like its own world, obsession can turn the person you are longing for in to a monument that has less and less to do with them and more to do with the idea of love itself and what it can do, what it can do, what it can soothe or quiet or light on fire. I wanted to show that maddening, solitary part of desire but keep the core which is a real warmth and belief that you have something crucial to share with each other.”
Watch the video for “On the Floor” below.
The track comes from Perfume Genius’ forthcoming album, Set My Heart On Fire Immediately, which drops on May 15th.
