Less than two months removed from the release of his solo holiday album, Merry Christmas, Mr. Fields, frontman Michael Angelakos and the rest of Passion Pit are back in the swing of things. This week, Angelakos launched The Wishart Group, an advocacy project that’s dedicated to providing musicians with legal, educational, and healthcare services, as well as used its YouTube page to share a pair of Passion Pit songs, “Inner Dialogue” and “Somewhere Up There”. He’s let loose another today in “I’m Perfect”, a buoyant indie pop cut outfitted with whirring synths.
Update — Wednesday July 26th at 1:05 p.m. CT: Passion Pit self-released their latest album, Tremendous Sea of Love, earlier this year. An official release, including via all streaming platforms, is set for this Friday. In advance, Angelakos & co. have re-shared “I’m Perfect” on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show this afternoon.
Hear it down below alongside a brief interview in which Angelakos discusses mental health in the artistic community. The frontman announced yesterday that he’d be taking a break from being a “commercialized artist” in order to devote more time to The Wishart Group.
