Perfume Genius is gearing up for the release of his third album, titled Too Bright, which is due to hit stores on September 28 via Matador Records. It was recorded with Portishead's Adrian Utley, and PJ Harvey collaborator John Parish contributed to a handful of tracks. You can take a listen to the LP's lead single "Queen" at the bottom of this post. Cover art and tracklisting for Too Bright can also be found below.

Perfume Genius will be embarking on a North American tour in support of Too Bright in late-September. That tour includes a show at Lincoln Hall on October 1 with Matteah Baim, and advance tickets for the Chicago show are on sale now.
