Perfume Genius rang in the new year with a remix of “Lightning Crashes,” the standout track from Live‘s 1994 album Throwing Copper. Mike Hadreas stretches the iconic song to seven and a half minutes, but once it gets to the third line, “The placenta falls to the floor,” it gets stuck on a loop.
“What if the angel never opened their eyes? What if the confusion never set in? Something to think about as we start this new year,” Hadreas wrote about the remix.
