Father John Misty
Release Date: TBA
Father John Misty's deeply ironic sincerity has taken a political tack since late last summer, when he cut short a Camden, New Jersey concert to deliver a Kanye-esque rant about the uses and abuses of entertainment in the Trump era. Subsequent SoundCloud releases – including his cover version of Tim Heidecker's droll kamikaze tune "Trump's Pilot" and the surprisingly somber new tune "Holy Hell" – suggested that dark political themes would be emerging in his work. He debuted three new songs at a December benefit concert in Seattle and announced the completion of his third album.
