Perfume Genius, the brainchild of Mike Hadreas, has announced a new album. Scheduled for release on May 5th via Matador Records, the new collection is called No Shape.
This will be the Seattle-based artist's fourth full length studio album as Perfume Genius, and it follows 2014's highly regarded Too Bright.
Today a video was released for the first single from the album, it's called "Slip Away", and you can watch it below. The video is directed by Andrew Thomas Huang — it's an action-packed clip with dancing, chases and a whole bunch of pretty pastoral scenery.
Here's what Hadreas had to say about his new project:
"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 into 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 bull**** I created for myself or how horrible everything and everyone is."
Fans of the cult artists are sure to be happy at the news of the upcoming album, and will surely be pleased at the direction of the visuals in this first video. With a tour on the horizon, and the new tunes coming in little over a month it does seem as if spring's going to be smelling sweet.
