Josh Tillman, better known as Father John Misty, produced the latest record himself and recorded with Jonathan Rado, Dave Cerminara, and Trevor Spencer. The album features contributions from Haxan Cloak, Natalie Mering of Weyes Blood, longtime collaborator Jonathan Wilson, and members of Misty’s touring band.
The band will show its chops on new songs like “Mr. Tillman” and “Date Night” from the new album on Thursday. Watch the official music video for “Date Night” by Father John Misty on YouTube:
In a review for Entertainment Weekly, Leah Greenblatt gave the new album an “A-.”
Leah said, “[F]our albums in, the FJM musical formula has been polished to a hirsute sheen: the debonair but world-weary raconteur, swinging between naked self-examination and serrated takes on millennial narcissism and scenester ennui. God’s Favorite Customer sounds as lush as anything he’s done — a rich tapestry of AM-radio jangle and strum threaded with songbook ballads.”
