Ezra Furman dropped the video for brand new track, “Driving Down To L.A” this week; it’s the first single from the singer/songwriter since 2015’s “Lousy Connection”.

Furman, from Chicago, has released three solo efforts as well as recording with his bands The Boyfriends and The Harpoons; his latest studio offering was 2015’s “Perpetual Motion People” which featured the break-out track, “Lousy Connection”.

“Driving Down To L.A.” was directed by Joseph Brent, and Furman has dedicated the video to Heather Heyer, a 32 year old paralegal who was killed during a “Unite The Right” Rally the day before the video was shot. Furman has described the track as ” A song about paranoia, escape and ecstatic ego-death. This video is about hos fear turns to violence. I hope it goes without saying that I don’t advocate shooting a gun into a car full of people, whether they are enraged white supremacists or not. The video is a fantasy and a nightmare. I think it matches the cultural nightmare we are now living through, one from which I pray we can soon wake up”.

The release of Furman’s new single coincides with his announcement of his hometown show at Thalia Hall in Chicago on Monday 26th February 2018.
