Perfume Genius Gets Confessional in 'Queen': MUSIC VIDEO

2_queen

Mike Hadreas — better known as Perfume Genius — likes to get confessional. On his most recent LP, the acclaimed sophomore effort Put Your Back N 2 It, Hadreas sang about family issues, and he performed in a tender music video where he was groomed by Arpad Miklos (RIP). He's back with new material, and so far it feels just as raw and honest.

QueenStereogum reports new details on forthcoming third album Too Bright: it will be released September 22, and Hadreas says the sound was influenced by landmark art rock albums such as Scott Walker’s Tilt and Kate Bush’s The Dreaming.

The first single is called "Queen," and it was released Tuesday. The song seems to be about DGAF-ing in the face of homophobia and gay panic — said Hadreas in his inimitable, surreal style:

Sometimes I see faces of blank fear when I walk by … if these fucking people want to give me some power — if they see me as some sea witch with penis tentacles that are always prodding and poking and seeking to convert the muggles — well, here she comes.

The new video from Seattle singer-songwriter Perfume Genius (aka Mike Hadreas) for his track "Hood" features adult film star Arpad Miklos as a tender hairbrusher, and I'd have to agree with some of the commenters on YouTube who say they'd love to hear two more minutes of this sweetness. His album, Put Your Back N 2 It, is out February 21.'

Hadreas has written of this track, "This is about when you feel like if someone really knew you, they would leave."
