Perfume Genius's "Die 4 You" is a song that uses erotic asphyxiation as a metaphor for committing entirely to a partner. “It’s a metaphor for giving all of yourself to someone else,” he recently told The FADER. “You can push it so far that I might even die and that would be OK.” Today, May 9, we get the stunning visual for the song.


Directed by Floria Sigismondi, the video begins with Mike Hadreas contorting his body in time with the eerie song. before things take a turn for the unsettling. Check out the video, which features a costume change, a floating chair, and Hadreas being drawn toward an amorphous fleshy mass, above.
