Another 2012 release to get excited about...
Following on from his ornate DiS 2010 year-end list bothering album Learning, heart-string snapping tearjerker Michael Hadreas aka Perfume Genius has a new record. His 'people' have confirmed that this new album'll be out on February 20th 2012 and it will be entitled Put Your Back N 2 It.
However, they go on to say:
Where Learning was stark and confessional however, Put Your Back N 2 It is lush and universal, and sees an expansion of both his thematic and sonic palette, playing as a broad meditation on intimacy, power, family, secrecy and hope, not just through his impressionistic lyrics, but through the music itself as well.
For a taste of it, you can Listen and download 'All Waters' from the album by clicking this link: http://tinyurl.com/PerfumeGenius-AllWaters
