After announcing earlier this year that he was collaborating with choreographer Kate Wallich and the dance company The YC on the new contemporary dance and live music piece 'The Sun Still Burns Here', Perfume Genius has now returned with the latest cut to be lifted from that new project.
The new single 'Eye In The Wall' clocks in at over 8 minutes in length, and will preview 'The Sun Still Burns Here' debuting at the Moore Theatre in Seattle on the 4th October, before continuing performances in New York, Minneapolis, and Boston later in the year as well.
Speaking about the new release, Mike Hadreas said, "I think of “Eye in the Wall’ as a cosmic peep show. Watching, being watched, dancers unlatched from the Matrix and truly LIVING. Creating new rituals on the other side. Whole bodies braiding, spit glowing in the dark and a camera floating just above. We spent a lot of time in the studio alternating between the math of the song and the magic of it—which was very much like the process of creating the dance itself. Working with Kate Wallich and YC, really being with my body, really being with other bodies - there is control and a real formula but a portal opened up in parallel that is completely free and overwhelmingly full of feeling."
