It's Mike Hadreas' first album since 2017

Perfume Genius has a new album on the way, titled Set My Heart on Fire Immediately. Above, you can watch a video for lead track 'Describe'.

Set My Heart on Fire Immediately, which follows on from 2017's No Shape, sees Perfume Genius, AKA Mike Hadreas, team up with musicians Jim Keltner, Pino Palladino, Matt Chamberlin and Rob Moose. He recorded it in Los Angeles with frequent collaborator Alan Wyffels.

"I wanted to feel more open, more free and spiritually wild, and I'm in a place now where those feelings are very close - but it can border on being unhinged," Hadreas says. "I wrote these songs as a way to be more patient, more considered - to pull at all these chaotic threads hovering around me and weave them in to something warm, thoughtful and comforting."

Matador will release Set My Heart on Fire Immediately on May 15.
