Father John Misty premieres new album, God’s Favorite Customer: Stream

on June 01, 2018, 12:59am

A little over a year after the release of Pure ComedyFather John Misty is back with its follow. God’s Favorite Customer, J. Tillman’s fourth album, is out today and can be streamed in full below.

Father John Misty, aka Josh Tillman, co-produced the record alongside the likes of Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado, Natalie Mering (Weyes Blood), The Haxan Cloak, and Jonathan Wilson. In terms of content, God’s Favorite Customer is, by Tillman’s own admission, “less pretentious” than his past works. His more honest lyricism came during a six-week period during which his “life blew up” and he nearly lost the woman who was the inspiration behind his sophomore solo LP, I Love You, Honeybear. It was a low point for Tillman, as he was living in a hotel and binging on bad habits, but he came out with what our own Steven Edelstone calls “a brutally honest comedown record.”

“One way or another, an exhausted and worn-down Tillman pulled himself out of his – what he called – ‘misadventure’ to piece together his absolutely gorgeous [record,]” Edelstone writes in his review of the album. “The end result sees Misty at his most desperate, heartbroken state, making a solid comedown record from I Love You, Honeybear and Pure Comedy that doesn’t quite hit the profound highs of its predecessors, but gets carried quite a long way on the backs of its honest songwriting.”
