Ten track LP on standard black vinyl
Limited time album download included
Father John Misty's 2017 album Pure Comedy was a mostly outward-looking collection of songs stuffed with long, lyrical meditations on life's greatest mysteries. Now frontman Josh Tillman returns with a more inward-looking follow-up, God's Favorite Customer.
NPR writes that "if the first two singles are any indication, it'll be, at turns, more buoyant and propulsive than the relatively subdued and ruminative Pure Comedy."
God's Favorite Customer was recorded with Jonathan Rado of the band Foxygen, and the first single, "Disappointing Diamonds Are The Rarest Of Them All," is psych-pop anthem. On the second new track, "Just Dumb Enough To Try," Tillman introduces analog synths and fuzzy guitars.
In addition to Rado, God's Favorite Customer features contributions from Dave Cerminara, Trevor Spencer, Haxan Cloak, Natalie Mering of Weyes Blood, longtime collaborator Jonathan Wilson and members of Father John Misty's touring band.
