Song Of The Day: Ezra Furman ” Love You So Bad “

Ezra Furman is back with a new single, Love You So Bad,  off his upcoming second album for Bella Union,  titled Transangelic Exodus, to be released February 9th, 2018.

 Furman calls the upcoming album…

“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.” 

To explain the backstory of the album he goes on to say:

” 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 harboring 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 story, he says

“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.”

Crossing between love, gender, sexuality, and religion, and singing in solidarity with the innocent, persecuted, oppressed and threatened, on Transangelic ExodusEzra Furman has soundtracked the current fear and loathing across America like no other.
