Lana Del Rey’s Father John Misty-Starring Video – In 11 Educational GIFs

“I don’t listen to that much new music,” Lana Del Rey said in 2013, “but I actually really love Father John Misty, who kind of reminded me of my roots.” Del Rey took FJM, aka Josh Tillman, on tour with her in 2014, and in 2015 she told The Current that she was his “number one fan,” adding that the period they toured together was “Fun! He definitely brings the fun. He’s really funny as you probably could imagine if you’re a fan. And also just seeing him on stage is really great.”

Knowing Del Rey’s dour persona, it’s pretty hard to imagine her getting along with the light-hearted Josh Tillman, but their new shared video, which you can see below, is full of gentle, trippy humour. That said, it remains firmly rooted in Del Rey’s world of sun-dappled malaise, and ends underwater, with all six minutes of Claude Debussy’s ‘Claire De Lune’. Here’s 11 things we learned from it:
