Seattle songwriter Mike Hadreas (aka Perfume Genius) has released “Rusty Chains”, a non-album track that’s been part of his live show for several months. Hadreas described the cut as “a song for a man whose lover has died. He remembers a time, before his partner took sick, where everything felt safe and endless. He asks to be taken next, so they can be together again.” With the somber crash of a piano and Hadreas’ emotionally devastated vocals, it’s hard not to get swept up by the whole heartbreaking affair. Download it below.
Hadreas’ latest album, Put Your Back N 2 It, is out now via Matador.
