Stream Perfume Genius' New Album 'Too Bright'

Seattle-based musician Mike Hadreas, who is perhaps better known by the moniker Perfume Genius, is sharing his provocative new album Too Bright ahead of its New Zealand release on Friday. Hadreas has remarked that this record, which is the singer-songwriter's third full-length offering, is a departure from the "gentler" sound of his previous two albums.
