Perfume Genius Drops New Music Video for “Some Dream”
- Back in May, American singer-songwriter Michael Alden Hadreas, aka Perfume Genius released his fifth studio album “Set My Heart On Fire Immediately” for the first time in three years.
From the alum, a new music video for “Some Dream” was premiered on November 23rd.
The video features actor Marc LeBlanc, who played Pigman. Directed by Charles Grant and Hunter Ray Barker.
“I’ve loved Mike’s music for a long time,” Charles Grant said in a statement. “[LeBlanc is] 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.”
The song was written by Perfume Genius and produced by Blake Mills. “The song is about the sort of dream world I keep myself in, in order to write,” Perfume Genius said. “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.”
- Perfume Genius told Apple Music about the song, “I think I feel very detached a lot of the time—very internal and thinking about whatever bullshit feels really important to me, and there's not a lot of room for other people sometimes. And then I can go into just really embarrassing shame. So it's about that idea, that feeling like there's no room for anybody. Sometimes I always think that I'm going to get around to loving everybody the way that they deserve. I'm going to get around to being present and grateful. I'm going to get around to all of that eventually, but sometimes I get worried that when I actually pick my head up, all those things will be gone. Or people won't be willing to wait around for me. But at the same time that I feel like that's how I make all my music is by being like that. So it can be really confusing. Some of that is sad, some of that's embarrassing, some of that's dramatic, some of it's stupid. There’s an arc.”
