Last week Father John Misty (aka Josh Tillman) shared a new song, “Mr. Tillman” (it was one of our Songs of the Week). The song was shared via a YouTube post that at first appeared to be a basic “Official Audio” video with the song’s title against a red background, but about two minutes in Tillman showed up and started dancing in front of still images of hotel lobbies and bars. Now Tillman has shared the raw green screen footage from the video. It doesn’t feature any sound. The YouTube description says “Rip away,” implying that fans could turn the footage into memes or make other videos from the footage. Watch it below.

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).

Tillman said in July 2017 he was almost done with his next album and that it would be due out in 2018. Also in a November 2017 with the British music magazine Uncut Tillman shed some more light on his next album and also revealed some of its potential song titles. In the interview Tillman described the new album as “the real I Love You, Honeybear but without the cynicism,” referencing his 2015 album.

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