Ezra Furman has returned with a brand new single, ‘Point Me Toward The Real’.

Teased last week, it’s the first new solo material from Ezra since the release of her 2019 album ‘Twelve Nudes’, and follows her soundtrack to Netflix show Sex Education.

Of the track, 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.”

Ezra Furman is set to return to the UK this summer, with appearances already announced for Standon Calling in July, and August’s Green Man Festival.
