Perfume Genius – “Go Ahead”

Perfume Genius – “Go Ahead”

Last month, Perfume Genius unveiled “Slip Away,” the first single from his upcoming fourth album, No Shape, alongside a gorgeously vibrant video. The album comes out in a couple of weeks, and today Mike Hadreas shared another new song during a Twitter Q&A session. “Go Ahead” is a creeping spaghetti strap Western built on top of a skittering beat in which Hadreas goads the listener in a delightful burst of defiance: “Now watch me/ Watch me walk on by/ Honestly/ Next one won’t be free/ Go ahead and try.” Listen to it below.
