Happy Release Day Father John Misty
Today at Bella Union we are celebrating the new album from the one and only Father John Misty. God’s Favorite Customer was produced by Tillman and recorded with Jonathan Rado, Dave Cerminara, and Trevor Spencer and was written largely in New York between Summer 2016 and Winter 2017. Father John Misty recently shared a video for the track “Please Don’t Die”, a standout from the LP. The new visual, which was helmed by returning director Chris Hopewell (“Things It Would Have Been Helpful To Know Before The Revolution”), was constructed and filmed at Jacknife Studios in Bristol, UK. Watch below…
Father John Misty’s tour in support of God’s Favorite Customer is currently underway with a show tonight in Dublin at Vicar Street and running through November 18th in Lausanne, Switzerland at Les Docks. Father John Misty will also headline the Hollywood Bowl on 24th June and Red Rocks on 15th August.
Early UK acclaim for God’s Favorite Customer:
“His most personally revealing album yet… A heady journey through excess, absurdity and 21st–century mores from arguably the world’s most eloquent singer–songwriter.” Q magazine – 4 Stars ****
“It really is glorious… There is little artifice here, no witty asides; It’s blinding at times, and that’s what makes this journey so exciting.” Uncut – 8/10 (Album of the Month)
“Outstanding… A record that’s as good as anything he’s made.” Long Live Vinyl – 9/10
“Utterly beautiful… Father John Misty delivers a record that’s on another level.” DORK – 5 Stars ****
“Genuinely heartfelt and gloriously tender… God’s Favorite Customer leaves the over–wrought days of Pure Comedy in its slipstream in return for something just that bit purer.” Record Collector – 4 Stars ****
God’s Favorite Customer is available now via Bella Union in the UK/Europe and Sub Pop in the US.
