Father John Misty shares new track ‘Ballad of the Dying Man’

Father John Misty has obviously been hanging around with Ty Segall such is his prolific output of late. Following up his recent release ‘Two Wildly Different Perspectives’ FJM has added another track for contention of ‘song of the week’ with ‘Ballad of the Dying Man’.

The new track follows not only this week’s release but also lead cut from the new LP ‘Pure Comedy’ as well as a hefty essay and 25 min short film. All of which has been undoubtedly terrific. This track circles on the fear of ‘deathbed regret’ and is guided by keys and guitar until the emotional chorus is won by the luxurious choir at the end.

As ever, well worth your time.
