Perfume Genius Announces New Remix Album, Shares New Video

Perfume Genius has announced a new album of remixes. Immediately Remixes will feature each track from 2020’s Set My Heart on Fire Immediately, reimagined by different artists. The record drops February 19 via Matador and includes reworks by A. G. Cook, Jenny Hval, Nídia, Danny L Harle, Westerman, and more. Today, Perfume Genius has shared the first remix from the album: “Your Body Changes Everything,” reimagined by Boy Harsher. Watch the music video for the track, starring trans activist and model Teddy Quinlivan, below.

“I’m very honored to have all these incredible musicians rework these songs,” Perfume Genius said in a press release. “I felt personally remixed listening to their versions, hearing the spirit of my song completely transformed was very magical. Each one feels like a little portal to a fucked up shared world.”

The music video for “Your Body Changes Everything (Boy Harsher Remix)” was directed by vocalist Jae Matthews and Caitlin Driscoll. Matthews said in a statement:

For the video, I wanted to create something that reflected my feelings of disconnect. Summer during COVID was complex—everyone was locked down, but so desperately wanted out. Screens and distance became the norm for casual interaction. Inspired by David Cronenberg’s Videodrome (1983) and Tobe Hooper’s Poltergeist (1982), I developed this idea where a man becomes haunted by a beautiful alien—who can only access him through his television set. Long live the new flesh! Luckily, Teddy Quinlivan was eager to participate from the very start and was a perfect cast for the flawless extraterrestrial. The desire within the video—the man wanting this cosmic babe so bad—matches the tone of the remix, especially during the sequences where she asks, “Can you feel my love?” through the static on the TV.
