Put Your Back N 2 It is the third studio album by American singer-songwriter Perfume Genius, released in February 2012 via Matador Records.

Perfume Genius is the stage name for Seattle-based solo artist Mike Hadreas who has released three albums to date.

Perfume Genius's 2010 debut album, Learning, was called “an album of rare, redemptive beauty…one of the most uniquely endearing and quietly forceful debut albums of recent years” by Drowned In Sound, and established him as one of the most singular songwriters today. The bulk of Learning sprung from a time of self-imposed isolation in his mother’s suburban home following a period of trauma and self-destruction.

Though Learning’s voyeuristic window into Hadreas’s experiences resonated intensely with many people, his second album Put Your Back N 2 It is much more universal, addressing intimacy, power, family, secrecy, and hope not just through his impressionistic lyrics, but the music itself, which is as lush as Learning was stark.

It’s a gorgeous soundtrack for anyone trying to keep it together in everyday life, and about moving forward. “I don’t want it to seem like I’ve been through more than other people,” Hadreas says. “Everyone has stuff. Staying healthy can be more depressing and confusing than being fucked up. But I want to make music that’s honest and hopeful.”

The hypnotic songs on Put Your Back N 2 It are tender and moving, but they are also surreal and grand, recalling at times the universality of lullabies and hymns, faraway folk songs, the dramatic arc of a film score, and the almost spiritual quality suggests a kind of opiated gospel. He cites as a primary influence not one of the indie icons to which he’s sometimes compared (Cat Power, Bon Iver, Thom Yorke), but The Innocence Mission (“not their sound, but their timelessness”).

Check out a couple of tracks of the album:  Dark Parts, Take Me HomeAWOL Marine, No Tear, 17 and Hood.

This limited LP vinyl record includes a printed inner sleeve and digital download code, pressed in Europe.
