Following up his current radio fave “Mr. Tillman” single out earlier in the year, word has now officially come down that Father John Misty will release his fourth album “God’s Favorite Customer” on June 1st.
The forthcoming 10 track long player was produced by Tillman and recorded with Jonathan Rado, Dave Cerminara, and Trevor Spencer and was written largely in New York between Summer ’16 and Winter ’17.
Father John Misty’s 2018 international tour schedule resumes April 28th in Cincinnati, OH for the National’s Homecoming Fest and currently runs through November 17th in Rust, DE at Rolling Stone Park. Highlights include a performance at the Hollywood Bowl with Gillian Welch on June 24th and Red Rocks with special guest TV on the Radio on August 15th.
“recalls psychedelic elements from the first FJM album….vocal melody moves like a druggy, half-lidded incantation that constantly threatens to wake up into a scene that’s more explicitly unnerving, that persistent piano line working against it to give the whole thing this darkly dreamy atmosphere, a Lynchian veneer of prettiness over something more sinister.”—Stereogum
“Damn, Tillman! Back at it again with the nice chorus and obtuse navel-gazing….concise and baroque” —NOISEY/Vice
“dances between psychedelic piano and guitar in a gentle, slightly disoriented twirl. And unlike the the meta commentary on ‘Pure Comedy’, this song is far more self-focused, as the title suggests.” —Consequence Of Sound
