Perfume Genius shares new album ‘Ugly Season’

Mike Hadreas is back with his new album as Perfume Genius, Ugly Season.

The record serves as the accompaniment to Perfume Genius and choreographer Kate Wallich’s immersive dance piece, The Sun Still Burns Here. The piece was commissioned by the Seattle Theatre Group and Mass MoCA and performed at several residencies throughout 2019. With the onset of the 2020 pandemic, they couldn’t perform The Sun Still Burns Here in the way it was imagined. So, Hadreas gave the completed recordings to Jacolby Satterwhite to create a short film, which came out earlier this week.

All-in-all Ugly Season is an orchestral, almost cinematic collection that leans into grand sonic territory. With emotional melodies and powerful, textured instrumental lines, this album is sure to move you.
