Father John Misty shares cover of T-Rex song ‘Main Man’

Father John Misty has released his reworked cover of T-Rex song ‘Main Man’.

The song comes in collaboration with the AngelHeaded Hipster: The Songs of Marc Bolan and T. Rex project, a compilation effort which was one of the final works of SNL music producer Hal Willner who died after contracting COVID-19 earlier in the year.

Discussing Willner’s love of Marc Bolan and T-Rex, Rachel Fox, the supervising producer of AngelHeaded Hipster, commented: “Hal had a unique vision of Marc Bolan’s music, and working on AngelHeaded Hipster brought him great joy. Speaking for those closest to him, we will forever be heartbroken at the untimely loss of our beloved friend and irreplaceable creative engine.”

She added: “Hal, who referred to AngelHeaded Hipster as his White Album, was eager for everyone to hear these beautiful songs and to start thinking about Bolan and T. Rex again. This album is a testament to Hal’s spirit.”
