Ezra Furman has shared another couple of songs due to feature on his new album Twelve Nudes.
“This is a romantic song of transgender longing,” Furman says of I Wanna Be Your Girlfriend. “It’s another entry in my series of ‘I Wanna’ songs (in the tradition of the Ramones). I thought it was time we had an ‘Earth Angel’ for the queers. Of course because it’s an Ezra Furman tune, there’s a little bit of desperation, religion and body-talk.”
The video for this track has been directed by Alix Spence, who adds: “For me, I Wanna Be Your Girlfriend is a music video about externalising the internal. Listening to the song and speaking with Ezra, I saw our two dancers, Brandon Mathis and and Jobel Medina, as physical manifestations of internal suffering.”
“I wanted to literally have us wrestle with ourselves and the complexities of our personal struggles.”
Also shared is Evening Prayer with Twelve Nudes set for release on August 30th.
