I’m a big fan of the TV show Sex Education for a lot of reasons. Otis is a great character with lots of interesting but relatable issues. His high school seems completely insane, his friends, enemies, acquaintances are all good characters. But the first thing that got me hooked on the show was the fact that it featured so much music from singer songwriter Ezra Furman.

Ezra Furman has long been one of my favorites his live shows are a great experience. Who better to set the musical tone than someone who writes so eloquently about the obstacles facing down those in the LGBTQI community. So much of the conversation around sex has changed in the last couple of decades, and it’s nice to see a show that covers all of it with respect and reverence.

In the last couple of weeks an album of music from the show was released by Ezra Furman, featuring some older songs and some written specifically for the show. The single, “Every Feeling,” got a new video released .

The song is a great introduction to his work. If you’re not a fan already, check this one out and then move on to his other amazing albums that have come out over the last six or seven years. The Sex Education soundtrack gathers the original songs that Furman composed for the first series and the brand new second series, whilst adding tracks featured on the show that can be found on prior Furman albums such as Perpetual Motion People and Transangelic Exodus. Lining up alongside older cover versions of LCD Soundsystem’s I Can Change and Melanie’s The Good Book is a new rendition of Devil Or Angel, The Clovers’ doo-wop jewel from 1956. It all adds up to a bumper 19-track set of Furman’s trademark enthusiastic emotional catharsis.

Ezra Furman returns with the soundtrack of special songs written from season 1 and 2 of the hit Netflix TV show. The 19-track LP is released via Bella Union Records. When the makers of the hit Netflix series Sex Education told Ezra Furman, “We want you to be the Simon & Garfunkel to our The Graduate”, they clearly recognised a kindred spirit. Who better to articulate all that awkwardness and alienation than Furman?
