Father John Misty Drops Live LP for COVID-19 Relief
Father John Misty has released a live album to benefit MusiCares’ COVID-19 relief fund. In classic Misty fashion, the LP is humorously titled Off-Key in Hamburg, available now via Bandcamp.
Misty, real name Josh Tillman, recorded the 20-song set at Hamburg Elbphilharmonie on August 8th, 2019, accompanied by the Neue Philharmonie Frankfurt. You can hear “Holy Shit” above, one of his beloved songs from I Love You, Honeybear.
Tillman closed the performance with a rare “Leaving L.A” from 2017’s Pure Comedy. He’s played the track only a handful of times, most likely because it clocks in at just over 13 minutes.
Tillman’s last album was 2018’s God’s Favorite Customer. Off-Key in Hamburg is his second live album, following his 2017 surprise concert at Third Man Records. He spent last year touring with Jason Isbell; he sprinkled an unreleased song into his set in June.
