The musician will release his new album, Transangelic Exodus on February 9, and has also penned in a number of international live dates - to include the Tivoli theatre for May 29.
Aiken promotions will hold Ezra Furman in The Tivoli following the release of his latest album, Transangelic Exodus through Bella Union. Furman has also unveiled the first single from the LP, ‘Love You So Bad,’ which can be streamed here.
Speaking about his new album, the musician says, “[it’s] 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.”
Furman’s previous album showcases his personal journey, coming out as queer and gender-fluid. He felt that “from a young age, because of issues surrounding gender and sexuality", he felt "fated to have an outsider perspective. It radicalises you.”
Following this, in Transangelic Exodus, Furman speaks about his Jewish faith much more openly than before. Particularly in ‘God Lifts Up the Lowly’ (which includes a verse in Hebrew) and ‘Psalm 151’, with a line expressing “I believe in God but I don't believe we're getting out of this one”.
