Ezra Furman returns with new single 'Point Me Toward The Real'

Following up the release of her brilliant 2019 LP 'Twelve Nudes' and recent stint soundtracking the hit Netflix show Sex Education, Ezra Furman has now returned to deliver a brand new single.

The new track 'Point Me Toward The Real' marks her first piece of solo material in three years, and features horn arrangements by Nathaniel Walcott (Bright Eyes), backing vocals from Shannon Lay and Debbie Neigher, and was produced, engineered, and recorded by John Congleton (Angel Olsen, Future Islands, Sharon Van Etten).

Speaking about the new offering, Furman explains: “This is a neo-soul song about getting released from a psychiatric hospital, which has never happened to me. But really it’s a song about what you do right after abuse, imprisonment, a brush with death. Who do you call when it’s supposedly over? Where do you go? How do you know what you want?

“We’ve all recently been going through something terrifying. We’ve all made friends with death in the last two years. When I look to the future, I want to know who has my back? Whose back do I have? And what is real, what and who can I rely on? Point me toward the real; there’s no other direction I want to go.”
