Listen to Perfume Genius’ Cover of ‘I Will Survive’

    Perfume Genius, aka Mike Hadreas, has offered his take on Gloria Gaynor’s disco classic ‘I Will Survive’. Check it out below.

    Sharing the cover through his newsletter, Hadreas had this to say about it:

    I recorded this at home for a commercial pitch, but they didn’t give me the money. I suppose the cover is a little deathbed-y, I was very serious that day, but i like how it turned out. In particular the last moment… i might stretch that in to something new.

    I dug around online for a while, looking for video to pair it with, and ended up with an old bowflex commercial and forest fire footage that I spliced together. Happy to share it with you. Goodbye everyone

    Perfume Genius released IMMEIDATELY Remixes, an album of reimagined versions of each track from last year’s Set My Heart on Fire Immediately, back in March. Earlier this summer, Hadreas collaborated with the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble for a cover of Richard Youngs’ ‘A Fullness of Light in Your Soul’.
