Ezra Furman announces new album with lead single “Forever In Sunset”

“Forever In Sunset” is the third outing from Furman’s new album, following last month’s “Book Of Our Names” and March’s “Point Me Toward The Real”, and is teamed with a Noel Paul-directed video.

Furman says of the new release, “The biggest influence on the lyrics of this song is a conversation I had with a friend of mine. When Covid was first hitting, she was talking to me a lot about how ready she felt. She was like, ‘People who have been comfortable in life are freaking out right now. But queer people like me have been in crisis before. I grew up poor and my family kicked me out when I was a teenager. My world has already ended plenty of times before, and we queers know what to do: we take care of each other, we help each other out, we have a network of support for the crises we know will hit us from time to time.'”

“And then she lost her job and ended up moving in with me and my family for like three months. And she was right, we were okay and we were taking care of each other,” Furman continues. “That influenced a lot of what the whole record is about. But “Forever In Sunset” is specifically 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.””

Furman adds, “Sometimes it feels like crisis is hitting more and more of the general population. They think the world is ending. But people who have been through a personal apocalypse or two have something to teach them. The world doesn’t end, shit just happens and if we don’t die we have to take care of each other.”

All Of Us Flames will follow Furman’s 2019 album Twelve Nudes, and is produced by John Congleton.

She says of the album, “This is a first person plural album. It’s a queer album for the stage of life when you start to understand that you are not a lone wolf, but depend on finding your family, your people, how you work as part of a larger whole. I wanted to make songs for use by threatened communities, and particularly the ones I belong to: trans people and Jews.”

Lyrics

I told you on the phone, I told you I was trouble, man
When we were both alone, I told you I was trouble, man
You got into my car, I don’t care what you are is what you said to me back then
I told you in the car, I told you I was trouble, man

The summer of the crash, the winter of survival mode
You saw it in a flash, we’re entering survival mode
I said you never learn, you signaled as you turned onto the wrong and binding road
That summer of the crash, that winter of survival mode

Do you remember when we thought the world was ending?
Seems funny now.
The future is a text message sending – out, out, out
I live forever in sunset. An ending not quite done yet.
Some people don’t understand that

You thought you understood, when you said you believed in me
I’m lost out here for good, but you said you believed in me
I didn’t think to ask, the tank was full of gas, pulled onto highway 93
The sun was in your eyes, you thought you could believe in me

A burning cigarette, an animal that digs for warmth
Assessing all that’s left, a burning urge to dig for warmth
There is no news to get, the certain sense of threat is all that keeps us driving North
You’ve got me in your arms, maybe that’s all we need for warmth
