Josh Tillman--aka Father John Misty-- recently hosted a star-studded benefit for folks affected by the recent California wildfires at the Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles. The singer-songwriter opened up the show by cracking up the crowd. “Everything tonight," Tillman said ”I’m sure you know already, benefits the NRA.”
But after a characteristic bit of deft social commentary, FJM debuted a new song. As Pitchfork pointed out, Tillman didn’t mention the name of the song but sings the refrain “all God’s country” throughout the tune. You can watch the debut in the video above.
Father John Misty released his stellar album, God’s Favorite Customer, in June of 2018. The new tune bodes well for another great album from FJM in 2019.
