Published Sep 13, 2019Perfume Genius detailed new dance and live music performance piece The Sun Still Burns Here earlier this year, and the artist born Mike Hadreas has now shared a new song from the production.
Titled "Eye in the Wall," you can hear the nearly nine-minute song in the player below.
"I think of 'Eye in the Wall' as a cosmic peep show," Hadreas explained in a statement. "Watching, being watched, dancers unlatched from the Matrix and truly LIVING. Creating new rituals on the other side. Whole bodies braiding, spit glowing in the dark and a camera floating just above.
He continued: "We spent a lot of time in the studio alternating between the math of the song and the magic of it — which was very much like the process of creating the dance itself. Working with Kate Wallich and YC, really being with my body, really being with other bodies – there is control and a real formula but a portal opened up in parallel that is completely free and overwhelmingly full of feeling."
The Sun Still Burns Here is set to debut in Seattle this October. Hadreas' last album as Perfume Genius was 2017's No Shape.
