Perfume Genius (aka Mike Hadreas) has announced a new album, No Shape, and shared a video for its first single, “Slip Away.” No Shape is due out May 5 via Matador. Below is the video for “Slip Away,” followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art, and Perfume Genius’ upcoming tour dates.

No Shape is the follow-up to 2014’s acclaimed Too Bright. Blake Mills produced the album, which was recorded in Los Angeles and mixed by Shawn Everett. Weyes Blood guests on one song, “Sides.” Andrew Thomas Huang directed the “Slip Away” video, which features Hadreas and a woman in period dress as they dance and then are pursued by two strange men. The video is co-presented by The Fader.

Hadreas had this to say about the album in a press release: “I pay my rent. I’m approaching health. The things that are bothering me personally now are less clear, more confusing. I don’t think I really figured them out with these songs. There’s something freeing about how I don’t have it figured out. Unpacking little morsels, magnifying my discomfort, wading through buried harm, laughing at or digging in to the embarrassing drama of it all. I may never come out the other side but it’s invigorating to try and hopefully, ultimately helpful. I think a lot of them are about trying to be happy in the face of whatever bullshit I created for myself or how horrible everything and everyone is.”
