Perfume Genius Announces ‘Immediately Remixes’ Album, Drops New Video

Perfume Genius has announced, Immediately Remixes, a companion album to his critically acclaimed album, Set My Heart on Fire Immediately. The album comes out February 19th via Matador Records and is a fully reimagined version of his 2020 album remixed by an all-star cast.

The new album features remixes by A.G. Cook, Jim-E Stack, Jenny Hval, and others. “I’m very honored to have all these incredible musicians rework these songs,” Perfume Genius’ Mike Hadreas said in a statement. “I felt personally remixed listening to their versions, hearing the spirit of my song completely transformed was very magical. Each one feels like a little portal to a fucked-up shared world.”

In addition, Hadreas also shared the Poltergeist-inspired music video for Boy Harsher’s remix of “Your Body Changes Everything.” Directed by By Harsher’s Jae Matthews and Caitlin Driscoll, the clip follows a man who is lured by the static of his television screen, which later reveals a seductive alien, played by model and trans activist Teddy Quinlivan.

“For the video, I wanted to create something that reflected my feelings of disconnect,” Matthews said in a statement. “Summer during Covid was complex — everyone was locked down, but so desperately wanted out. Screens and distance became the norm for casual interaction. Inspired by David Cronenberg’s Videodrome (1983) and Tobe Hooper’s Poltergeist (1982), I developed this idea where a man becomes haunted by a beautiful alien — who can only access him through his television set. Long live the new flesh!”

“Luckily, Teddy Quinlivan was eager to participate from the very start and was a perfect cast for the flawless extraterrestrial,” he continued. “The desire within the video — the man wanting this cosmic babe so bad — matches the tone of the remix, especially during the sequences where she asks ‘Can you feel my love?’ through the static on the TV.”
