Watch Father John Misty perform a brand new song

He played 'Mr Tillman' at a show in Tokyo.

Footage has emerged of Father John Misty playing one of his new tracks, ‘Mr Tillman’.

The singer – real name Josh Tillman – performed the track during a recent show in Tokyo, and while he’s played it live a few times before, it’s the first time it’s been caught on camera.

Watch the fan-recorded video below.


Tillman released his ‘Pure Comedy‘ LP last year, his third album as FJM. It was named as one of NME’s albums of 2017.

He was also namechecked as one of NME’s best live acts of 2017, as well as having Edward Steed’s artwork for ‘Pure Comedy’ hailed one of the best album artworks of the 21st century.

The singer was announced as one of the acts playing at The National‘s brand new, self-curated festival Homecoming, alongside Future IslandsThe Breeders, Lord Huron, Julien Baker, Moses Sumney, Alvvays, and Big Thief. More artists are set to be announced at a later date.
