Perfume genius covers Radiohead’s ‘4 Minute Warning’: Listen

Perfume Genius shared a cover of Radiohead’s 4 Minute Warning. The song was recorded at the famous Electric Lady Studios in New York City as part of Spotify’s Live at Electric Lady series. Mike Hadrea’s version of the In Rainbows Disk 2 cut appears on a new four track EP. Perfume Genius: Live at Electric Lady also includes Hadreas’ original songs “Whole Life”, “Photograph” and “On the Floor”. Check it out below.

“Last year’s tour was really inspiring after such a long time,” Hadreas commented in a press release. He continued:

I’m delighted to have a record of the new vibrancy and immersive spirit my band brings to the live versions of our latest albums. “4 Minute Warning” became one of my favorites during lockdown, something I would sit and sing on the piano in my room over and over again. I’m glad to have left this space and share it again.”

The original versions of “Whole Life” and “On the Floor” appear in full on Perfume Genius’ 2020 set My Heart on Fire IMMEDIATELY, while “Photograph” is taken from Hadreas’ new album Ugly Season. The latter LP was released with an accompanying short film by visual artist Jacolby Satterwhite, who directed Solange’s When I Get Home.

On December 9th, Perfume Genius will headline a showcase on the Year 2022 of Music at the Knockdown Center in Queens, hosted by Pitchfork Presents. Grace Ives will also star on the show.

Rewatch Pitchfork’s song-by-song interview: “The perfume genius dissects every song on his beguiling new album, sets my heart on fire instantly.”
