Father John Misty is getting ready to release a brand-new album for his fans and recently spoke to Uncut about the upcoming effort. In the interview, Josh Tillman explained when he wrote the album, what fans can expect from the songs, and even dropped a few song titles to whet the appetite of his fans. There is no release date set for the new album yet.
The last Father John Misty album was Pure Comedy, which went on sale in April 2017, making the fact that another album is in the works slightly surprising. Tillman has only released three albums since taking on the Father John Misty moniker in 2012.
According to Tillman, he wrote most of the upcoming album over a six-week period when he was "on the straits" living in a hotel. In what he called a "misadventure," Tillman said that the words were "pouring out" and he ended up writing a "heartbreak album." Tillman also said that this is similar to I Love You, Honeybear but "without the cynicism."
As for the songs, Tillman listed four titles that will appear on the yet unnamed new Father John Misty album. Those are "Well, We’re Only People And There’s Nothing Much We Can Do About It," "Mr. Tillman, Please Exit The Lobby," "Dum Dum Blues" and "Ouch, I'm Drowning."
