At his show last night at BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival Father John Misty (aka Josh Tillman) performed a brand new song, reportedly titled “Tell It Like It Is,” and there is some good fan shot video of the performance. It’s a moody number, backed by horns. Watch it below, via Stereogum, who point out that the song first debuted in Detroit on Monday.

Earlier this week Father John Misty performed another new song he implied was rejected for use in last year’s hit film A Star Is Born.

Father John Misty’s last album, God’s Favorite Customer, was released in 2018 via Sub Pop. Read our review of God’s Favorite Customer. God’s Favorite Customer was one of our Top 100 Albums of 2018.
