Perfume Genius Performs On The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon

Last night, Perfume Genius (Mike Hadreas) performed the single “On The Floor,” from his recent release “Set My Heart On Fire Immediately,” on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. The performance was shot in the empty music venue,The Lodge Room in Los Angeles, CA. In addition to the televised performance, Hadreas also shared an online-only performance of his ballad “Jason,” a stunning and relatable retelling of a one night stand. Hadreas was backed by a band of notable performers including his long time collaborator Alan Wyffels and Hand Habits’ Meg Duffy.

Perfume Genius recently released his new album, Set My Heart On Fire Immediately on Matador Records to worldwide critical acclaim. The album was produced by GRAMMY-winning producer Blake Mills and features contributions from musicians Jim Keltner, Pino Palladino, Matt Chamberlin and Rob Moose. It was recorded in Los Angeles, where Perfume Genius settled in 2017 with longtime partner and musical collaborator Alan Wyffels. The album explores and subverts concepts of masculinity and traditional roles, and introduces decidedly American musical influences.
