Ezra Furman unveils new single 'Poor Girl A Long Way From Heaven'

With her highly-anticipated new album landing in the coming weeks, Ezra Furman has now dropped yet another cut lifted from her forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Poor Girl A Long Way From Heaven' comes accompanied by a brilliant new video, directed by Haoyan of America, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Lilac and Black', 'Forever In Sunset', 'Book Of Our Names', and 'Point Me Toward The Real' in previewing her new LP 'All Of Us Flames', which is out on the 26th August via Bella Union.

Speaking about the new offering, Furman said, “The spiritual life ain’t all pious platitudes. This song is about how weird it gets, when you’re in love with the Source of Being and She’s not texting you back. Ever since it hit me that I was never going to be loved and accepted on the scale of my pop star heroes, me and my bandmates have started to work on a different vision of pop, one more our own, one that gestures at the stranger truths of the human mind. Here we are in thrall to verbally adventurous nineties music like Bjork and Beck and the Silver Jews and them kinda non-linear geniuses.”

While adding about the visuals, “Basically told Haoyan a story I made up about a trans Joan of Arc narrowly avoiding her public execution, and then gave him free reign to do whatever he wanted with it, as long as Daphne Always (also seen in our recent ‘Forever in Sunset’ video) played Joan. I adore the cracked brilliance of what came out.”
