Set My Heart On Fire Immediately is the fifth studio album by American singer-songwriter Perfume Genius, released in May 2020 via Matador Records.

Perfume Genius is the stage name for Seattle-based solo artist Mike Hadreas.

Set My Heart On Fire Immediately sees artist and musician Mike Hadreas re-teaming with Grammy-nominated producer Blake Mills and features contributions from musicians Jim Keltner, Pino Palladino and Matt Chamberlin. It was recorded in Los Angeles, where Perfume Genius settled in 2017 with long-time partner and musical collaborator Alan Wyffels.

The album explores and subverts concepts of masculinity and traditional roles, and introduces decidedly American musical influences. Throughout Hadreas plays with themes of love, sex, memory and the body, channelling popular music mythologies while irreverently authoring its own – from the delirious, Cyndi Lauper-nodding celebratory pop of “On The Floor”, spectres of Elvis on haunted tremolo waltz “One More Try”, to the harpsichord- punctuated baroque pop of “Jason”, and gliding steel guitar and Balearic rhythm of “Without You”.

“I wanted to feel more open, more free and spiritually wild,” says Hadreas, “and I’m in a place now where those feelings are very close-- but it can border on being unhinged. I wrote these songs as a way to be more patient, more considered -- to pull at all these chaotic threads hovering around me and weave them in to something warm, thoughtful and comforting.”

First album taster “Describe” captures this sense of fleetingness and living in the moment through a heavy fog of grizzly distortion and tumbling slide guitars: “It started as a really sombre ballad. It was very minimal and very slow. And then it turned into this beast of a song. I started writing that about when you are in such a dark place that you don’t even remember what goodness is or what anything feels like. And so, the idea was having someone describe that to you, because you forgot or can’t get to it.” Its accompanying video, self-directed by Hadreas, envisions “an end of the world where there are no boundaries, there are no edges, no rules, or the rules are completely new with how you interact with each other and the space around you.”

Set My Heart on Fire has received critical acclaim upon release from music critics. At review aggregator Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from critics, the album received a weighted average score of 92 out of 100, based on 15 reviews.

This double album 2LP record set is an indie exclusive limited edition on blue coloured vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with printed inner sleeves, pressed in Europe via Matador Records.
