Perfume Genius, nom de poster-wraith of musician Mike Hadreas, releases his fourth album, No Shape, on Matador Records. The album was recorded in Los Angeles, produced by Blake Mills, mixed by Shawn Everett. Perfume Genius's 2014 breakout album Too Bright - featuring seismic anthem Queen - marked a musical and performative leap that sounds unlike anything before or since. With his new songs, Hadreas goes even further, merging church music, makeout music, R&B, art pop, krautrock, and queer soul into his take on stadium anthems, completing the journey from critically acclaimed underground hero to fully fledged pop auteur. First single Slip Away encapsulates this bold, expansive and sophisticated sound, marrying powerful and intimate songcraft with a newfound visceral and immersive sonic gusto.
