Father John Misty will release his new album, God’s Favorite Customer, via Sub Pop on June 1st!
Wait…really? Yes! You read that correctly…Father John Misty, hot off the heels of 2017’s Pure Comedy, is unleashing another new album for us to cry over. God’s Favorite Customer will be released via Sub Pop Records on June 1st.
God’s Favorite Customer reveals a bittersweetness and directness in Tillman’s songwriting, without sacrificing any of his wit or taste for the absurd. From “Mr. Tillman,” where he trains his lens on his own misadventure, to the cavernous pain of estrangement in “Please Don’t Die,” Tillman plays with perspective throughout to alternatingly hilarious and devastating effect. “We’re Only People (And There’s Not Much Anyone Can Do About That)” is a meditation on our inner lives and the limitations we experience in our attempts to give and receive love. It stands in solidarity with the title track, which examines the ironic relationship between forgiveness and sin. Together, these are songs that demand to know either real love or what comes after, and as the album progresses, that entreaty leads to discovering the latter’s true stakes.
All customers who pre-order the LP version of God’s Favorite Customer via Sub Pop will receive the album on Loser Edition Metallic Purple-colored vinyl, while supplies last.
