The soundtrack features original songs recorded by Furman last summer as well as tracks from his previous albums, and it arrives on the same day (January 11) as Sex Education‘s Netflix premiere.

The comedy-drama stars Asa Butterfield as British teenager Otis whose divorced parents (including X Files‘ Gillian Anderson) are both sex therapists – a situation that leaves him with all manner of dysfunctions. Using what he’s learned from eavesdropping on his mother’s sessions, Otis, along with his friend Maeve (Emma Mackey), set up an unauthorised sex therapy clinic in their high school for their fellow students.
‘Love You So Bad‘, from Ezra’s 2018 album Transangelic Exodus, soundtracks Sex Education‘s trailer, which you can view below.
Of the soundtrack, Furman said: “I am honoured that they asked us to do the soundtrack and I am psyched to see the whole show (I’ve just seen some clips they sent me).
“It was very fun to work on and I’m very grateful to everyone who worked on the show and helped me be a part of it.”
The musician added: “Oh, and the band and I got to be in one of the episodes! Filmed in Wales in August just before doing some touring in Europe. We’re the band at the school dance and we look great. There’s a little glimpse of us at some point in the trailer.
“Anyway… super excited to watch some TV for which I MADE THE SOUNDTRACK. Fingers crossed for it to get released as its own soundtrack album but we’ll have to just wait and see on that one.”
