Father John Misty has teased his return with a cryptic new video.
Following a slew of West Coast Shows, he’s shared a new video on Instagram. He wiped his Instagram clean of posts, and then dropped this monochromatic clip. While it doesn’t reveal too much information, it definitely hints at new material. The eerie black-and-white clip sees a car parked beneath hazy lighting. In the background, some ominous music plays.
The last Father John Misty album was 2018’s God’s Favourite Customer. Following the album, FJM shared the Anthem +3 EP and a Bandcamp Live collection. He also dropped two singles, “To S” and “To R.” In September, the artist covered T. Rex’s “Main Man” as part of a T. Rex and Marc Bolan tribute compilation.
Check out the teaser in full below.
Father John Misty released “To S” and “To R” as part of the Sub Pop Singles Club. Together, the tunes serve as companion pieces. They both feel like heartfelt messages to whoever they are meant for.
His cover of T. Rex’s 1972 track is definitely a standout on the T. Rex and Marc Bolan tribute. That collection was dubber AngelHeaded Hipster: The Songs Of Marc Bolan. It boasted T. Rex renditions from Nick Cave, Devendra Banhart, Joan Jett, Peaches, and more.
Back in March of 2020, Father John Misty shared a live album, Off-Key In Hamburg for MusiCares’ COVID-19 Relief Fund. The album was recorded on August 8th at the Hamburg Elbphilharmonie with his touring band and the Neue Philharmonie Frankfurt.
