Ezra Furman releases cover of Melanie’s ‘Good Book’ from ‘Sex Education’

"I take comfort in this song"

Ezra Furman has shared his cover of the Melanie track ‘Good Book’. Hear it first on NME below.

The track features on the Netflix series Sex Education, which Ezra has written the soundtrack for, as well as his new covers EP which arrives tomorrow.

“When all of a sudden you go from singing to tiny crowds to singing for huge crowds, you start to wonder, wow, what should I say to all these people?” said Furman. “I take comfort in this song, which gives a suggestion of what to say to an enormous crowd: ‘Tell us you love us, so we don’t feel alone’.”

Furman added: “We gather in crowds and look to someone at the front for guidance. When I’m at the front, that’s what I hope to say, in whatever clumsy way I can: to tell you I love you, so you don’t feel alone. “

After the first series approved to be a hit with viewers and critics, the show has since been confirmed for a second season.

Ezra Furman performs at Deer Shed Festival on Sunday July 28.
