An undisputed highlight of the record was single ‘When I’m With Him’, and it’s now got a new version courtesy of none other than Perfume Genius!
A kind-of cover version, the track sees Mike Hadreas take lead vocals, but was produced in tandem with Lorely Rodriguez (Empress Of), so is more of a collaboration.
The new version strips away the driving percussion of the original, giving way to a more sparse and atmospheric version.
Empress Of is set to bring ‘Us’ to the UK later this year for three headline shows including a London gig at Scala.
View the dates and listen to the new, Perfume Genius-featuring version of ‘When I’m With Him’ below.

It comes ahead of the release of his new album ‘Ugly Season’.
Perfume Genius - Ugly Season
An album in its truest form, a record to sit with and take in as one whole.
The record is an accompaniment to Mike Hadreas’ dance piece ‘The Sun Still Burns Here’.
In celebration of the album’s one year anniversary!
