Ezra Furman has announced three Canadian dates for early 2020, to support her 2019 masterpiece, ‘Twelve Nudes’. The album was mixed by venerated producer John Congleton (Sharon Van Etten, St. Vincent), and the result is an album that is less stereotypical punk than raw, raucous rock’n’roll. The album has two spiritual heroes –  the late great punk Jay Reatard and Canadian writer and philosopher Anne Carson. The title stems directly from Carson, who used the term “nudes” to describe the meditations she used to deal with intense pain in her life. 

Far from being defeated by a world in turmoil, Furman’s productivity has only increased the worse things have got – and he’s taken up different disciplines to boot. Between ‘Transangelic Exodus’ and ‘Twelve Nudes,’ the 33⅓ imprint published her deeply personal, thoughtful and incisive book on Lou Reed’s legendary 1972 album ‘Transformer,’ before Furman scored the soundtrack to Netflix’s acclaimed comedy ‘Sex Education,’ which showcased the tender side of her songwriting. 2020 will be no different as Furman announces new dates, including festival dates as a part of Winterruption and Big Winter Classic in January. Tickets and details are listed on ezrafurman.com
