Most of Father John Misty’s recent musical output has come in the form of silly parodies. He spoofed Ryan Adams’ Taylor Swift covers, wrote jingles for Pandora and Toyota, and even penned lyrics for House of Cards. Tonight, however, he’s getting super serious with the release of an actual song called “Real Love Baby”. Might this be our first preview of Father John’s third LP? As we wait for more details, listen to the sun-soaked reverb-heavy indie pop track below.
Update – Friday, May 19th at 10:30 a.m. CT: J. Tillman has clarified that “Real Love Baby” is not on his new album, “it’s just a thing.” The Budos Band’s Thomas Brenneck plays guitar.
Father John Misty’s sophomore album, I Love You, Honeybear, was released last year.
