Father John Misty has shared a video for his 10-verse, semi-autobiographical epic “Leaving LA.” The visual--filmed and edited by Grant James--comes in black and white and sees Josh Tillman in the studio along with a large orchestral group. The video also features a few candid reaction moments from Tillman as he sips from a glass at the mixing board. You can check it out above.
“Leaving LA” is the latest Pure Comedy track to get the visual treatment. As Pitchfork pointed out, FJM has also released videos for “Total Entertainment Forever,” “Things It Would Have Been Helpful to Know Before the Revolution,” “Two Wildly Different Perspectives” and the album’s titular track.
Although Pure Comedy came in April of 2017, FJM recently announced that another album is on the way. While a release date has yet to be set, Tillman did reveal some song titles. You can read more about the new album here.
FJM will help Björk, Beck and more close out London’s All Points East festival on Sunday, May 27. You can find tickets on AXS by clicking here.
