Ezra Furman announces new album 'Twelve Nudes'

Following on from the glittering success of his previous LP 'Transangelic Exodus' last year, Ezra Furman has now announced his plans for a new studio album, arriving in August.

The new full-length 'Twelve Nudes' will become the frontman's first release under the new name Ezra Furman & The Band With No Name, is being previewed by the new lead single 'Calm Down', and is set to be released on the 30th August via Bella Union.

Speaking about his forthcoming release, he said, “This is our punk record. 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.

“Desperate times make for desperate songs. I wrote this in the summer of 2018, a terrible time. It’s the sound of me struggling to admit that I’m not okay 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.”
