Misty – aka former Fleet Foxes member and solo artist Josh Tillman – previously released a lengthy explanation about the album in a press release. Speaking about the LP, he said: “‘I Love You, Honeybear’ is a concept album about a guy named Josh Tillman who spends quite a bit of time banging his head against walls, cultivating weak ties with strangers and generally avoiding intimacy at all costs. This all serves to fuel a version of himself that his self-loathing narcissism can deal with. We see him engaging in all manner of regrettable behavior.”
“In a parking lot somewhere he meets Emma, who inspires in him a vision of a life wherein being truly seen is not synonymous with shame, but possibly true liberation and sublime, unfettered creativity. These ambitions are initially thwarted as jealousy, self-destruction and other charming human character traits emerge. Josh Tillman confesses as much all throughout.”
Misty recently made an appearance on US TV chat show David Letterman to perform a track from the LP, ‘Bored In The USA’, accompanied by a 22-piece string orchestra. You can watch footage of his performance below.
