Info on the new album by Father John Misty (aka Josh Tillman), God's Favorite Customer, leaked yesterday and at midnight he shared two songs from the album to Spotify and Apple Music, "Just Dumb Enough to Try" and "Disappointing Diamonds Are the Rarest of Them All." Now he has officially announced the album and confirmed its details. Below is the info, followed by Father John Misty's upcoming tour dates and all three songs from the record shared thus far.

God's Favorite Customer is due out June 1 via Sub Pop worldwide (except for Europe, where it's on Bella Union). Tillman produced God's Favorite Customer, which was recorded with Jonathan Rado, Dave Cerminara, and Trevor Spencer. It was written largely in New York between Summer 2016 and Winter 2017. The album will be available in various formats: CD, digital, cassette, standard black vinyl, and "the limited Loser edition on metallic purple vinyl."

Back in February Father John Misty (aka Josh Tillman) shared a new song, "Mr. Tillman" (it was one of our Songs of the Week). It is also included on the album.

Father John Misty released his latest album, Pure Comedy, in April 2017 via Sub Pop (it was Under the Radar's #1 Album of 2017 So Far in our midyear wrap up and #9 in our final Top 100 Albums of 2017 list).

Father John Misty appeared on the cover of Under the Radar's Spring 2017 Issue.
