Earlier this week, Seattle pop performer Perfume Genius (a.k.a. Mike Hadreas) shared the details for his forthcoming Too Bright LP, along with the anthemic new song "Queen." Today, that track's been treated to a video.
The visually stunning clip is full of eye candy, from late-night drives to a room full of pigs, another room full of insects and smashed TVs, an Elvis impersonator with a golden prosthetic leg, a business meeting-turned-fashion show starring Hadreas, and so much more. It's an excellent video.
Watch the clip for "Queen" above. Too Bright arrives on September 23 through Matador.
