On the telly: Perfume Genius takes ‘Slip Away’ to Colbert

Perfume Genius takes ‘Slip Away’ to Colbert

Mike Hadreas released his fourth album ‘No Shape’ last week.

With his incredible new album ‘No Shape’ (which we gave a full five stars!) now out in the wild, Perfume Genius stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to perform stand-out single ‘Slip Away’ on the telly.

Armed with some customised diamanté in-ears, a whole dollop of drama, and a suit-dress hybrid, Perfume Genius brought the wavering, tension-filled ‘No Shape’ cut to life on the stage.
