Perfume Genius has covered Mazzy Star’s iconic 1994 single ‘Fade Into You’ as part of Amazon Music’s new PROUD series. Listen to the Amazon Original here.
“I chose ‘Fade Into You’ because I carried it with me for a long time and I always looked to it for the warmth and the very heavy vibe that it always brings,” Perfume Genius explained in a statement. “It felt almost uncoverable but I wondered what I could do to make it sharper and maybe a little more desperate but still maintain the sort of beauty of it and the quietness of it.”
Last month, Perfume Genius put out his fifth studio album, Set My Heart On Fire, via Matador Records. Check out our review of the album here.
