PERFUME GENIUS RELEASES A. G. COOK REMIX + VIDEO FOR ‘DESCRIBE’
TAKEN FROM IMMEDIATELY REMIXES ALBUM, OUT MARCH 12 DIGITALLY AND PHYSICALLY ON RECORD STORE DAY, JUNE 12
Perfume Genius reveals A. G. Cook’s remix of his single ‘Describe’. The track is taken off the forthcoming IMMEDIATELY Remixes album which is set for release digitally on March 12 and physically on June 12 (Record Store Day). The video for ‘Describe’ was co-directed by Jack Wedge and Will Freudenheim.
The most consuming re-work so far, the film itself takes you on this out of world experience let alone the fitting remix!
IMMEDIATELY Remixes sees every song on Perfume Genius’ critically acclaimed album Set My Heart On Fire Immediately remixed in original running sequence by an all-star cast. In addition to Boy Harsher and A. G. Cook, the lineup includes Jaakko Eino Kaleivi, Jim-E Stack, Planningtorock, Jenny Hval, Initial Talk, Boy Harsher, Nídia, Danny L Harle, Westerman, Actress, Koreless and Katie Dey. Hadreas has said, “I’m very honored to have all these incredible musicians rework these songs. I felt personally remixed listening to their versions, hearing the spirit of my song completely transformed was very magical. Each one feels like a little portal to a fucked up shared world.”
From operatic acid-rave (‘Just A Touch’) to opulent 80’s synth-funk (‘On The Floor’), ambient club polyrhythms (‘Moonbend’) to breakbeat-addled electronic pop (‘Describe’), tech-damaged tremolo waltz (‘One More Try’) to a mid-song running artist commentary on the remix itself (‘Leave’), IMMEDIATELY Remixes is an endlessly surprising, imaginative and replayable set to match its source material.
