Ezra Furman will release new album All of Us Flames on August 26 via ANTI. It was produced by John Congleton and is the third album in the trilogy that began with 2018’s Transangelic Exodus and continued with 2019’s Twelve Nudes. As for this one, Ezra says “I started to think of trans women as a secret society across the world: scattered everywhere, but so obviously bound together, both in being vulnerable and having a shared vision to change a fundamental building block of patriarchal society. I’ve been building my world of queer pals, and it feels like we’re forming a gang.”
The album includes previously released song “Book of Our Names” and the new single is the synth-rock anthem “Forever in Sunset.” Ezra says while the song is influenced by the way people coped with the pandemic, specifically it’s about “a woman who’s been through some shit speaking to a new lover who is becoming attached to them, trying to warn the lover about how she is trouble, about how she has been through crises and they will come again. And that’s just how she lives, never settled, never safe, but also never defeated/finished – ‘forever in sunset.'” You can watch the video, directed by Noel Paul, below.
Ezra will be on tour starting next week, including spring dates with Grace Cummings, a couple August shows opening for Jack White, and September dates with Art Moore including a NYC show at Webster Hall on 9/21. All dates are listed below.
