"I take comfort in this song"
Ezra Furman has shared his cover of the Melanie track ‘Good Book’. Hear it first on NME below.
“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. “
Ezra Furman performs at Deer Shed Festival on Sunday July 28.
