    Ezra Furman has a new album on the horizon. The musician’s sixth solo album All of Us Flames is out August 26th via ANTI-, and as a preview, she’s shared the record’s lead single, “Forever in Sunset.”

    Produced by John Congleton and written mostly during the early stages of the pandemic, All of Us Flames is the third installment in Furman’s LP trilogy, preceded by 2018’s Transangelic Exodus and 2019’s Twelve Nudes. Thematically, the record is a celebration of the unique communities Furman belongs to — particularly being transgender and Jewish — and finding comfort in them, even as those communities continue to be threatened.

    “This is a first person plural album,” Furman writes in a press release. “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.”

    “Forever in Sunset” is a spot-on introduction to All of Us Flames. Combining Furman’s love of Springsteen-like bravado and punky grit, the song is inspired by that persistent sense of apprehension that can loom after you’ve spent years feeling unsafe: “Do you remember when we thought the world was ending?/ Seems funny now,” Furman sings.

    “The biggest influence on the lyrics of this song is a conversation I had with a friend of mine,” Furman adds.”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.”

    Pre-orders for All of Us Flames are ongoing. See the album’s artwork and tracklist, and watch the music video for “Forever in Sunset,” below.

    “Forever in Sunset” follows Furman’s previous single “Point Me Toward the Real,” which also appears on the album. Soon, she’ll head out on a North American tour, which you can get tickets for at Ticketmaster.
