New Music: Perfume Genius – “Slip Away”

Mike Hadreas, aka Perfume Genius, has formally announced his new album, the follow-up to 2014’s Too BrightNo Shape is out May 5 via Matador. He’s also shared the video for first single “Slip Away,” a very Marie Antoinette clip in which Hadreas and a pal dance and gallivant around a number of colorful environments. Watch it below via The Fader, and find tour dates, album art, and a tracklisting.

“I pay my rent,” Hadreas said in a press release. “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.”
