From Perfume Genius::
“Touring over the last year has been really inspiring after so long away. I am happy to have a document of the new vibrancy and rousing spirit my band brings to the live versions of our most recent albums. “4 Minute Warning” became a favorite of mine during lockdown, something I would sit and sing over and over on the piano in my room. I’m happy to be out of that room now and sharing again.”
2020, saw the release of Perfume Genuis’ Set My Heart On Fire. The album was also produced by GRAMMY-winning producer Blake Mills and featured contributions from musicians Phoebe Bridgers, Jim Keltner, Pino Palladino, Matt Chamberlin and Rob Moose with longtime partner and musical collaborator Alan Wyffels. The album explores and subverts concepts of masculinity and traditional roles, and introduces decidedly American musical influences.
In 2021 perfume Genius released Ugly Season, an album born out of Hadreas and choreographer Kate Wallich’s 2019 dance piece, The Sun Still Burns Here. He went on to team with visual artist Jacolby Satterwhite for a 30 minute film, Pygmalion’s Ugly Season, featuring Hadreas and the music of Ugly Season. Hadreas has collaborated with artists including Christine And The Queens, Sharon Van Etten, Weyes Blood, Cate Le Bon, Anna Calvi, King Princess and more.
