Watch Father John Misty perform 'Please Don't Die' live with orchestra


Father John Misty was joined on stage by the Ulster Orchestra for a rendition of his new song ‘Please Don’t Die’ during the BBC’s Biggest Weekend event.

Taken from Misty’s new album God’s Favorite Customer, the emotionally charged and somewhat self-confessional record that seems to be directed at past misdemeanours and his marital problems, Tillman sings of “pointless benders with reptilian strangers” and waking up to texts saying, “It’s all too much.”

Tillman has always been able to tell a tale with his songwriting and, with the addition of the Ulster Orchestra while performing live in Belfast, the emotion took this song to the next level.
