Other / Quinn Wilson

Ahead of her upcoming worldwide headlining tour, Empress Of has shared a new version of her single “When I’m With Him.” The rework is a wholesome collaboration with Perfume Genius who transforms the bilingual bop into a slow-winding ballad that hits heavy on the heart. Empress Of doesn’t completely disappear from the song and dives into full-on duet mode as the soul-crushing chorus approaches.

Empress Of’s sophomore album Us is out now. After you stream this gorgeous cover, scroll down for the full list of tour dates.
