Perfect pop polymath Ezra Furman is back with a powerful new song The Refugee, taken from his Big Fugitive Life EP out this Friday via Bella Union.
The song concerns Furman’s Jewish background and is dedicated to his grandfather who fled the Nazi’s, as well as current day refugees. Having just returned from a hugely moving and affecting visit to the Anne Frank Museum in Amsterdam this one has even more resonance for us at the moment.
“We dedicate this record to refugees of all kinds, all over the world. May all the wanderers find the homes they seek, and and may those with power welcome them as fellow citizens of humanity.”Follow @madmackerel
