As part of the 33 1/3 series...

Ezra Furman is writing a new book on Lou Reed's 1972 album 'Transformer'.

The project is part of the spring batch of releases from 33 1/3, the pocket-sized album guides that regularly hook up with artists.

Jonathan Lethem, Colin Meloy, Daphne Brooks, Gina Arnold and Alan Warner have all contributes to the series, with Ezra Furman the next in line.

The songwriter is fresh from the release of new album 'Transangelic Exodus', but will take time out to finish the book.

'Transformer' is perhaps Lou Reed's most accessible solo album, co-produced by David Bowie and Mark Ronson.

Yet there are still clear nods to his underground roots, from it's coy sexuality, embrace of trans-gender issues, and more.

It'll be interesting to see Ezra Furman's take on a true classic - order your copy HERE.
