Musician Ezra Furman Unveils New Album, All of Us Flames, and Announces Tour Dates


Singer and songwriter Ezra Furman has released his latest album, All of Us Flames, featuring a video of his new song, “Always in Sunset,” directed by Noel Paul. The LP will be launched on August 26 by Anti-.

In addition, the 35-year-old artist has announced several dates for a new tour.

“Always Sunset” comes after the previous songs “Book of Our Names” and “Point Me Toward the Real.” The latest album was produced by John Congleton.

“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,” Furman said of the new album. “I wanted to make songs for use by threatened communities, and particularly the ones I belong to trans people and Jews.” 

A public statement from Furman reveals that All of Us is a part of a trilogy involving the Transangelic Exodus of 2018 and LP Twelve Nudes in 2019.
