Perfume announce Level 3 tracklist, share "1mm," tour dates presumably to follow

Japanese pop powerhouse Perfume have just announced that their fourth album, Level 3, will be out October 2 — and that is good news. Unbeknownst to most of the western world, producer-writer-mastermind Yasutaka Nakata has been making some of the best electro-pop around since all the drugs and AC/DC affinities caught up with the Ed Banger crew. Judging from what we’ve already heard of the tracklist (see below), “だいじょばない” and “Spending All My Time” will demonstrate as much. “Point” even manages to incorporate a jungle-ferocious breakbeat into pop elegance à la Cornelius. Coincidence?

Probably! This announcement is accompanied by a “short version” music video of album track “1mm,” which is a Francophile electro barnstormer notably weirded the heck up by something between a synth and an autotuned vocal playing a Middle Eastern scale. Check it below, along with the Level 3 tracklist.

Level 3 tracklist:

01. Enter the Sphere
