Songfacts®:

  • This was one of three new tracks that was written after the release date for Happy People was pushed back to February 9, 2015. Vocalist Harry Koisser told NME: "A newer song recorded in Wales, written after I moved out of Holloway and was crashing at my agent's empty flat in Angel."

    "Every record has to have one of those songs that written in two minutes and 'Perfect Image' is one of those," he added. "It's written about something I've never written about before: body image."
