Ezra Furman veröffentlicht zwei neue Songs & ein Video

Die Vorfreude auf die Veröffentlichung des neuen Ezra Furman-Albums „Twelve Nudes“, das am 30. August über Bella Union erscheint, steigert sich langsam aber sicher ins Unermessliche. Zum Glück veröffentlicht der außergewöhnliche Künstler nun gleich zwei neue Tracks des Longplayers.

Zur neuen Single „I Wanna Be Your Girlfriend“ sagt Furman: “This is a romantic song of transgender longing. It’s another entry in my series of ‘I Wanna’ songs (in the tradition of the Ramones). I thought it was time we had an ‘Earth Angel’ for the queers. Of course because it’s an Ezra Furman tune, there’s a little bit of desperation, religion and body-talk.

Das dazugehörige Musikvideo wurde von Alix Spence entwickelt, die dazu erzählt: “For me, I Wanna Be Your Girlfriend is a music video about externalising the internal. Listening to the song and speaking with Ezra, I saw our two dancers, Brandon Mathis and and Jobel Medina, as physical manifestations of internal suffering. I wanted to literally have us wrestle with ourselves and the complexities of our personal struggles. The video features amazing choreography from Sarah Prinz and costumes by Britton Litow.”

Die zweite Single „Evening Prayer“ ist bisher nur für unsere Ohren bestimmt, aber mindestens so tiefgründig wie „I Wanna Be Your Girlfriend„: “Our rallying cry. We music fans go to shows for transcendence; it’s like being called to prayer. But as Abraham Heschel said, “Prayer is meaningless unless it is subversive, unless it seeks to overthrow and to ruin the pyramids of callousness, hatred, opportunism and falsehood. I want all our fans to become activists. We punk fans have so much energy to give to the fight against injustice, i.e. the abuse of the poor by the rich, i.e. climate change. So this is one to get you in the mood.
