Perfume Genius delivers new single 'On The Floor'

With his highly-anticipated new album set to arrive in the coming months, Perfume Genius aka Mike Hadreas has now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from his forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'On The Floor' follows on from the previously shared lead track 'Describe' in previewing his new LP 'Set My Heart On Fire Immediately', which is due to be released on the 15th May via Matador Records.

Speaking about his latest offering, he said, “A crush can really live on its own, separate from you and the person you are pining for. The fantasy feels like its own world, obsession can turn the person you are longing for in to a monument that has less and less to do with them and more to do with the idea of love itself and what it can do, what it can soothe or quiet or light on fire. I wanted to show that maddening, solitary part of desire but keep the core which is a real warmth and belief that you have something crucial to share with each other.”
