Perfume Genius Joins Alice Boman on New Song ‘Feels Like a Dream’

    Alice Boman has teamed up with Perfume Genius’ Mike Hadreas for a new song, ‘Feels Like a Dream’, the latest offering from Boman’s upcoming album The Space Between. Check out a video for it, directed by longtime collaborator Jeanne Lula Chauveau, below.

    “I have been listening to Alice for a long time, and her music has been a particular comfort to me over the last couple of years,” Hadreas said in a statement. “There is sadness and longing in her songs, but always in tandem with a singular warmth and generosity.”

    Talking about the new single, Boman commented:

    In the past, I’ve written a lot of songs about disappointments, heartbreaks, and the longing for love. Being in love — I thought it would be so hard to write songs about that. Not wanting to sound too cheesy. But love can be cheesy. And this song is about how it sometimes feels like a dream to be with that someone. Especially when you’ve been wondering if you’d ever find love.

    Me and Mike have been writing to each other on Instagram here and there. Once we, talked about maybe doing a cover of a mutual favorite song, Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Storms’. When I talked to Mike about doing something together for the album I was working on and sent him a few demos, he chose ‘Feels Like a Dream’. I think it works beautifully as a duet — us representing and singing from the two sides of a relationship. I have listened to Perfume Genius for a long time and love his voice and sound, and I’m thrilled that he wanted to be a part of this.

    The Space Between comes out October 21 via [PIAS].
