Perfume Genius—aka Mike Hadreas—has shared a new track, “Pop Song.”
“Pop Song” is taken from The Sun Still Burns Here, Hadreas’ new multimedia collaboration with dancer/choreographer Kate Wallich and the dance company The YC. It debuted this month in Seattle, and will continue in select cities across the United States.
“I imagined an ecstatic pile of bodies preparing to be consumed by the gods,” Hadreas said of the song in a press release. “A joyous communal sacrifice of the physical to spiritually level up. The lyric is like a conjuration spell to be sung when the mountain of bodies settles in position and is held still as an offering.”
“Pop Song” is the second track released from the production, following “Eye in the Wall.”
