Father John Misty has shared a new stop-motion video for his song ‘Please Don’t Die.’ A track and video which follows FJM in to the Underworld to literally confront death face to face.
With new album God’s Favorite Customer on it’s way to our ears on Friday 1st June, we are still as excited as little pups to see another installment of the Papa John Misty experiment, and this one satisfies in so many ways.
Created by the brilliant artist Chris Hopewell (the man behind Papa’s own “…Revolution” video, Radiohead’s ‘Burn the Witch,’ Run the Jewels’ ‘Don’t Get Captured,’ and a shit ton more) it’s a child-like view of mortality which is endearing and confusing. Much like FJM himself.
So while we wait for the new LP to drop via Sub-Pop/Bella Union on Friday, sit back and enjoy this brilliant piece of work from both the singer and the visual creator.
