Perfume Genius and Hypnotic Brass Ensemble Share Cover of ‘A Fullness of Light in Your Soul’

    Perfume Genius and the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble have released a cover of Richard Youngs’ ‘A Fullness of Light in Your Soul’. It’s taken from the ensemble’s upcoming album This Is a Mindfulness Drill, a tribute to Youngs’ 1998 LP Sapphie that’s out on June 25 via Jagjaguwar and also features collaborations with Moses Sumney and Sharon Van Etten. Take a listen below.

    “I recorded this cover while deep in quarantine,” Perfume Genius explained in a statement. “Working on it brought a really welcome energy, I went fully into songworld and put reality on hold for a moment. It’s a big song too, so I got to stay there for a while. Both the original and the arrangement by the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble have a truly hypnotic and almost mystical quality, while singing it I tried to stay hyper-present and thought of it like we were all casting one long spell.”
