Check Out: Perfume Genius covers Madonna "Oh Father"


You might not immediately think of Madonna as an inspiration for Perfume Genius mastermind Mike Hadreas or even an artist he’d think to cover – but lo and behold, here’s his version of her Like a Prayer ballad “Oh Father.” It’s a live cover, recorded at this year’s Latitute festival on a vintage keyboard, and less than ninety seconds long, but that doesn’t mean you won’t keep pressing play – Hadreas has a knack for tearjerkers that weasel their way to your heart, and this one, with its profound lyrics an emotional piano chords, is no exception.
