Ezra Furman shared the Season 1 hit song from the Netflix series Sex Education, “Every Feeling”. The song comes as announcement of the Sex Education Original Soundtrack which Furman is releasing this Friday via Bella Union.
This is her follow-up to her critically acclaimed album, Twelve Nudes. Furman and her band recorded these songs for the Emma Mackey and Asa Butterfield starring show in between sessions of recording her last album.
The soundtrack which includes tracks from both the first and second season, the latter of which recently became available to stream, and includes original tracks as well as covers of artists such LCD Sound System and The Clovers.
The creators of the show approached Furman, telling her, “We want you to be the Simon & Garfunkel to our The Graduate”.
And she ran with it. “I decided I’d use the Sex Education project as a place to put my tenderness, my sadness and longing,” Furman says. “The soft teenage feelings that every adult knows continue long after high school ends.”
“Making music for a TV show was a new experience for me,” she says. “As a fan of many a high school comedy, for example The Breakfast Club and 10 Things I Hate About You, I knew how fun the music can be, and also how emotional. I wanted to rise to the challenge.”
The soundtrack will be out this Friday to stream and will get a CD and vinyl release on April 10th.
