Following the release of his LP Perpetual Motion People on Bella Union, Ezra Furman has shared the playful video for ‘Body Was Made’ on Noisey. The video sees an all-star cast featuring members of Bella Union label-mates Landshapes as well as members of Peggy Sue performing in a sort of bizarro-reality musical contest that’s brimming with humor and sass.

Director Anika Mottershaw notes: “We wanted the video to feel goofy and fun. It was fun making it with our friends, and we hope that comes across.”  This invented scenario accomplishes these aims, all the while beautifully addressing the themes of bodies and identity that Furman so poignantly raises up in his lyrics.  As Ezra explains himself: “Body Was Made is a protest song against the people and forces that would make me ashamed of my body, my gender and my sexuality. Its a declaration of freedom from false authority and self-appointed social police who have given me grief all my life.”
