Check out a list of albums that I'm excited for over at my Upcoming Releases page!
This week, Perfume Genius announced his fourth studio album, No Shape.
Perfume Genius is Mike Hadreas, a Seattle-based performer who got his start in 2008 and released his debut album, Learning, in 2010. His music largely addresses his experiences as a gay man, becoming progressively more confident and bombastic with each record. Though all of his work is celebrated, his most recent album, Too Bright, was met, deservedly, with the greatest critical acclaim of his career.
No Shape was announced on Tuesday, along with a video for a new song, "Slip Away."
The album is set to be released on May 5.
