Father John Misty’s forthcoming fourth studio LP will include songs called “Ouch, I’m Drowning,” “Dum Dum Blues,” “Mr Tillman, Please Exit The Lobby,” and “Well, We’re Only People And There’s Nothing Much We Can Do About It.” The names were revealed by Josh Tillman himself in a new interview with Uncut.
Here’s some more on the as-yet-untitled follow up to Pure Comedy, from Uncut:
“Most of this next album was written in a six-week period where I was kind of on the straits. I was living in a hotel for two months. It’s kind of about… yeah… misadventure. The words were just pouring out of me. It’s really rooted in something that happened last year that was… well, my life blew up. I think the music essentially serves the purpose of making the painful and the isolating less painful and less isolating. But in short, it’s a heartache album.”
Tillman also described the record as “the real I Love You, Honeybear but without the cynicism.”
No cynicism from us here, either. We miss you, Father John Misty. Please come back and bring us content. We are nothing without you.
