Father John Misty debuts new song ‘Please Don’t Die’
American singer, songwriter, guitarist, drummer and record producer Joshua Michael Tillman, also known as Father John Misty and previously J. Tillman, finally released his new song “Please Don’t Die,” that got the premiere treatment at BBC Radio 1’s Biggest Weekend in Belfast on Friday (May 25).
Tillman’s new album ‘God’s Favorite Customer’ was announced on April 18 and is scheduled to be released by Sub Pop and Bella Union on June 1st.
It is the fourth studio album by the musician and it was primarily produced by Tillman himself and Jonathan Rado. Moreover it includes a variety of musical collaborators, including The Haxan Cloak, Weyes Blood, and members of Tillman’s touring band.
As regards “Please Don’t Die”, it is a ballad which shows off the musician’s cloud-skating range and the more sardonic strains of his romantic side: he’s begging for the object of his affection to be patient and understanding, especially when it comes to reading intense text messages sent during long nights out on the road.
