Perfume Genius (aka Mike Hadreas) released a new album, No Shape, back in May 2017 via Matador, but his latest project is doing the music for the immersive dance project The Sun Still Burns Here and now he has shared another track from it, “Pop Song.” Listen below.

Hadreas had this to say about the song in a press release: “I imagined an ecstatic pile of bodies preparing to be consumed by the gods. A joyous communal sacrifice of the physical to spiritually level up. The lyric is like a conjuration spell to be sung when the mountain of bodies settles in position and is held still as an offering.”

Previously Perfume Genius shared the project’s “Eye in the Wall.” For The Sun Still Burns Here Hadreas has collaborated with choreographer Kate Wallich and Dance Company The YC. It was commissioned by Seattle Theatre Group and Mass MoCA.
