The day when the whole of music spends the morning bickering about something with the aim of promoting new music (read my last post) got a whole let better with the news of the return of Perfume Genius. Mike Hadreas has announced the follow up to the intimate, stark and staggeringly beautiful 'Learning' (one of my favourite albums of 2010), entitled 'Put Your Back N 2 It' it will be released February 20th via Turnstile Music.
As a preview you we've been treated to a free download of album track "All Waters", which sees a continuation of the slight arrangements, delicate, echoing vocals and heartbreaking delivery (though the initial ten seconds sounds like a slowed down version of "I Want To Break Free"!). I cannot wait to hear the rest, the press release promises a lush expansion of Mike's sound, I'm certainly anticipating a sublime album that promises to be one of 2012's best.
You can listen / download "All Waters" below and pre-order a signed copy of the new album direct here. UK liive dates are promised for Spring.
