Father John Misty likens 2016 US Presidential election to World War III

He has also named his top 10 albums of 2015

Josh Tillman, aka Father John Misty, has likened the upcoming 2016 US Presidential election to World War III.

In the most recent issue of Under The Radar magazine, Tillman shared his “year-end deep thoughts”, saying of the upcoming election, “It looks like World War III is going to be a real hoot.”

Speaking about streaming services, he said that he was hoping “to go a year without proffering my opinion on streaming music” and joked that the new global release day of Friday was “going to save the music industry”.

Tillman also named his 10 favourite albums of 2015, which included Björk’s Vulnicura, Lana Del Rey’s ‘Honeymoon’, Joanna Newsom’s ‘Divers’ and Miley Cyrus’ ‘Miley Cyrus And Her Dead Petz’.

He shared the full list on Facebook last night (February 5) – see his top 10 alongside the Q&A, below:

Last month it was announced that Father John Misty would appear in Lana Del Rey’s new video for ‘Freak’. The singer confirmed the cameo on January 25, with the video expected to arrive soon after. In addition to Father John Misty, the ‘Freak’ video will also feature some of the cast from her ‘Music To Watch Boys To’ video.

Father John Misty toured with Del Rey in 2014, supporting her on a number of US tour dates. She is on record as being a big fan of his work too, telling The Current in November last year: “I’m his number one fan. His songs really bring me back to why I started writing in the first place. None of the fancy stuff, it’s just the story in each one of his songs. I feel like he has all of his insecurities and all of his hopes flow so seamlessly throughout each song. And his voice is amazing. I’ve seen him live a few times. We went on tour together for a minute.”
