Watch Father John Misty’s Animated ‘Date Night’ Video

Singer puts psychedelic spin on modern dating in Chad VanGaalen-created visual

Father John Misty has shared his new animated video for "Date Night," the latest single off the singer's latest LP 'God's Favorite Customer.'

Father John Misty has shared his new animated video for “Date Night,” the latest single off the singer-songwriter’s latest LP God’s Favorite Customer.

The video, directed by artist and Sub Pop musician Chad VanGaalen, doubles as a psychedelic spin on modern dating with disfigured superheroes scrolling through dating apps and a crystal ball serving up partner recommendations.

A cartoon version of the singer born Josh Tillman appears in the video’s closing moments holding a martini while riding atop a bat-winged piano.

“Date Night” is Tillman’s third God’s Favorite Customer video to incorporate animation elements: “Mr. Tillman” made clever use of miniatures while “Please Don’t Die” employed stop-motion.

God’s Favorite Customer arrived in early June, just 14 months after the artist released his 2017 LP Pure Comedy. Tillman is currently on a North American trek in support of his new album, with stops including San Francisco’s Outside Lands, Chicago’s Riot Fest and the Austin City Limits Festival.
