Perfume Genius serves up ‘Go Ahead’, the second song from his new album No Shape, that’s due for release May 5th on Matador.
The track follows the barnstorming ‘Slip Away‘ and you can hear it in all its pulsing disjointed glory below.
In a press statement Perfume Genius aka Mike Hadreas had this to say about the songs on No Shape:
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 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.
