Perfume Genius releases cover of Mazzy Star’s “Fade Into You”
Perfume Genius has covered Mazzy Star's extremely classic "Fade Into You" for Amazon Music's newly relaunched PROUD playlist, "which shines a spotlight on the best new music from the LGBTQ+ community."
"I chose ‘Fade Into You’ because I carried it with me for a long time and I always looked to it for the warmth and the very heavy vibe that it always brings," Perfume Genius says. "It felt almost uncoverable but I wondered what I could do to make it sharper and maybe a little more desperate but still maintain the sort of beauty of it and the quietness of it."
I would say Perfume Genius' gorgeous, breathtaking rendition of the song does just what he said out to do, as you can hear for yourself below.
