Perfume Genius (aka Seattle songwriter Mike Hadreas) will return early next year with his sophomore LP Put Your Back N 2 It. The follow up to 2010’s Learning, the 12-track effort was recorded in England and Seattle with Andrew Morgan and John Goodmanson. The end result, according to Matador Records, “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.”

As an early preview, you can stream the track titled “All Waters” below. Or you can check out Perfume Genius’ new three-piece lineup on the road this month when Hadreas and co. open a string of East coast dates for Beirut. The album’s tracklist and tour schedule are further down the page.

Put Your Back N 2 It hits stores on February 21st via Matador.
