You've Got To Hear Perfume Genius Cover Elvis Presley's 'Can't Help Falling In Love'

Mike Hadreas, aka Perfume Genius, aka Mom, aka Dad, aka Queen, released a stunning cover of Elvis Presley’s classic love song, “Can’t Help Falling In Love” Friday in the form of a commercial (starring ANSEL, of all people) for Prada’s new fragrances, La Femme and L’Homme.


While the original version of the tune is a simple, slow dance-ready ballad that feels like a warm embrace in a dusty old dive bar, Perfume Genius’s pulsating update turns Presley’s chaste confession into something sexier and more exciting. He’s not just promising love, he’s threatening it.

You can hear the full version on Spotify.
