Ezra Furman Announces New Album ‘Transangelic Exodus’, Shares Single “Love You So Bad”, 2018 Tour Dates

Ezra Furman will return in early 2018 with a brand new album titled Transangelic Exodus. On February 9, fans will bear witness to his next full length release. In a statement Furman relayed, “2016 was a hard year. While the political and cultural conversation devolved in a very threatening way, we travelled and toured a lot. We saw ourselves coming to the end of what we were, and we wanted to become something new.” He goes on to detail the upcoming album, saying it is “Not a concept record, but almost a novel, or a cluster of stories on a theme, a combination of fiction and a half-true memoir. A personal companion for a paranoid road trip. A queer outlaw saga.”

“The narrative thread is I’m in love with an angel, and a government is after us, and we have to leave home because angels are illegal, as is harbouring angels. The term ‘transangelic’ refers to the fact people become angels because they grow wings. They have an operation, and they’re transformed. And it causes panic because some people think it’s contagious, or it should just be outlawed.”

“The album still works without the back story, though,” Furman adds. “What’s essential is the mood — paranoid, authoritarian, the way certain people are stigmatized. It’s a theme in American life right now, and other so-called democracies.”

Below fans can find the track listing, the lead single, and Furman’s 2018 tour dates.
