Sweden’s Alice Boman today released “Feels Like A Dream,” her romantic new single featuring guest vocals from Perfume Genius, off her forthcoming new LP The Space Between due out October 21st via [PIAS]. The track originated from a few Instagram DMs and arrives alongside a video by Boman and her longtime collaborator Jeanne Lula Chauveau, premiering today at The FADER (Perfume Genius contributed the above quote and Boman’s thoughts on the track are below). The Space Between, produced by Patrik Berger (Robyn, Lana Del Rey).
“In the past I’ve written a lot of songs about disappointments, heartbreaks and the longing for love. Being in love – I thought it would be so hard to write songs about that. Not wanting to sound too cheesy. But love can be cheesy. And this song is about how it sometimes feels like a dream to be with that someone. Especially when you’ve been wondering if you’d ever find love. Me and Mike have been writing to each other on Instagram here and there.
Once we talked about maybe doing a cover of a mutual favorite song – Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Storms.’ When I talked to Mike about doing something together for the album I was working on, and sent him a few demos, he chose ‘Feels Like A Dream.’ I think it works beautifully as a duet – us representing and singing from the two sides of a relationship.
I have listened to Perfume Genius for a long time and love his voice and sound and I’m thrilled that he wanted to be a part of this.”
“Feels Like A Dream” follows “Maybe” (via FLOOD Magazine) and the album’s lead single “Night and Day.” These songs mark first new music since the release of her critically acclaimed 2020 debut LP, Dream On, which earned praise from The New York Times, The FADER (20 best rock songs), Billboard, Gorilla vs Bear, Loud & Quiet (9/10 stars), Uncut, Mojo, and more. Boman today also announced more European dates–with tickets on-sale August 24th (10am CET)–expanding on her headlining U.K. tour, which includes a December show at London’s The Lexington. A full itinerary is listed below and tickets for current dates are on-sale now.
