World Cafe Playlist for 06/10/2024

Perfume Genius joins host Raina Douris

In 2020, Perfume Genius released his album, Set My Heart on Fire Immediately—and he wasn’t joking around with that title! On the World Cafe, he talks about how a recent collaborative dance piece influenced the making of his latest album as well as his overall outlook on life. And he shares how he got into both the occult and Bjork as a teen.

Listen to the session here.
