Ezra Furman
is back and better than ever with his blazing new single 'Calm Down AKA I Should Not Be Alone', which is set to appear on his forthcoming album Twelve Nudes. The album is due for release on August 30th via Bella Union.

Furman's raw and heated vocals reflect his frustration with the current state of the world. According to Furman in a statement, the track came from a place of desperation, "Desperate times make for desperate songs. I wrote this in the summer of 2018, a terrible time. It’s the sound of me struggling to admit that I’m not okay with the current state of human civilization, in which bad men crush us into submission. Once you admit how bad it feels to live in a broken society, you can start to resist it, and imagine a better one."

If 'Calm Down' is anything to go off, Twelve Nudes is set to be a huge release for Furman and we can't wait to hear more.
