Perfume Genius Shares New Track ‘On The Floor’

Perfume Genius have shared their latest single “On the Floor,” from their upcoming album Set My Heart On Fire Immediately.

Mike Hadreas spoke about the new song in a press release saying “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.”

Check out the accompanying video, directed by Perfume Genius, below.

Set My Heart On Fire Immediately drops May 15th via Matador records. In support of the album, Perfume Genius will hit the road with Tame Impala this spring. Check out the dates here.
