Speaking of the release, the musician shares: "I'm very honored to have all these incredible musicians rework these songs. 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." The 2xLP will be pressed onto metallic silver vinyl, limited to an edition of 2,500 exclusive to indie record stores as part of Record Store Day on June 12.
Describing the record as an album about connection to Apple Music, Mark Hadreas’s fifth LP under his alter-ego Perfume Genius, Set My Heart On Fire Immediately continues the musicians musical collaboration with producer Blake Mills on the cinematic record that offers intimate moments of introspection. Moving between genres and musical styles throughout its duration, the record bases itself around Americana pop and post rock’n’roll sounds. With his mesmerising vocals taking centre stage along with his striking lyricism. Complete with gorgeous melodies and captivating arrangements, Set My Heart On Fire Immediately is a powerful and focused body of work.
