Ezra Furman has confirmed details of her new album.

Produced by John Congleton, 'All Of Us Flames' is scheduled to arrive on August 26 via Bella Union, following up 2019's 'Twelve Nudes' LP, and an EP written for the most recent series of Netflix's Sex Education.

It'll include the previous singles Book Of Our Names and Point Me Toward The Real, along with the newly shared synth-laden cut Forever In Sunset, which comes paired with Noel Paul-directed video. Furman commented:

"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.

"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."

"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."

Furman will return to the UK for appearances at Standon Calling in July, along with Edinburgh International Festival and Green Man Festival in August, next to two runs of North American dates. She also has headline shows in the diary for the autumn, including a date at London's Roundhouse on November 17. Tickets are on sale.
