Ezra Furman has announced his new album and shared a surprise new single.
The album will be called “Twelve Nudes” and will be a follow-up to 2018’s Transangelic Exodus.
“This is our punk record,” Ezra said in a press release. “We made it in Oakland, quickly. We drank and smoked. Then we made the loud parts louder. I hurt my voice screaming. This was back in 2018 when things were bad in the world. The songs are naked with nothing to hide.”
Along with the announcement is a brand new track “Calm Down aka I Should Not Be Alone”. Describing the new track, Furman said: “Desperate times make for desperate songs,” Furman said of the new track. “I wrote this in the summer of 2018, a terrible time. It’s the sound of me struggling to admit that I’m not OK with the current state of human civilization, in which bad men crush us into submission. Once you admit how bad it feels to live in a broken society, you can start to resist it, and imagine a better one.”

The upcoming album will land on August 30.
