Last month, Father John Misty shared two brand new songs called ‘To R.’ and ‘To S.’, which were released as a AA-side as part of the Sub Pop Singles Club.

In addition, the singer – real name Josh Tillman – has also released a new live album called ‘Off-Key In Hamburg’, which saw proceeds donated to the MusiCares coronavirus relief fund, and shared a new Bandcamp EP of Leonard Cohen covers.

In a review of ‘Off-Key In Hamburg’, NME‘s Leonie Cooper wrote: “Thanks to the sterling work of the Neue Philharmonie Frankfurt, everything here is scattered with a liberal amount of magic dust, elevating it from your normal gig into a swish, Sinatra-style outing.”


Father John Misty’s last full-length album was 2018’s ‘God’s Favorite Customer’, which arrived a year after his ‘Pure Comedy’ record.
