Following the release of fifth LP ‘Set My Heart On Fire Immediately’, Perfume Genius is sharing the video for album gem ‘Some Dream’.
Directed by Charles Grant & Hunter Ray Barker and featuring “Los Angeles Legend”, pigman, Mike Hadreas says of the inspiration, “The song is about the sort of dream world I keep myself in, in order to write. Sometimes I wonder if there will be real world costs for staying there too long. I don’t want to pick my head up after a bunch of years go by and see a bunch of songs but nobody to love.”
Charles adds, “I’ve loved Mike’s music for a long time. Marc LeBlanc is the star of the video - he plays the pigman. He’s an amazing actor and his performance in combination with how powerful and emotional Mike’s music is gave this whole project such amazing energy and spirit. Hunter and I are really grateful to have added to Mike’s creative world in a way that feels uniquely true to him, us and Marc all at once… We are all pigs.”
