Perfume Genius, real name Mike Handreas, said: “I’m very honored to have all these incredible musicians rework these songs. I felt personally remixed listening to their versions, hearing the spirit of my song completely transformed was very magical. Each one feels like a little portal to a fucked up shared world.”

A video for Boy Harsher’s take on ‘Your Body Changes Everything’, directed by the group’s singer Jae Matthews alongside Caitlin Driscoll, has been released to mark the announcement.
