Emma Elizabeth Tillman directs and Josh Tillman stars in the new Father John Misty video for “God’s Favorite Customer,” the title track from his acclaimed new album. The new visual for the song (which features a glorious duet with Sub Pop labelmate Weyes Blood) finds Tillman wandering the dark, early morning streets of New York City [https://youtu.be/sNG4g354P3w].
God’s Favorite Customer is one of the best-reviewed albums of the year, earning “Best Albums of the Year (So Far)” notices from the likes of Rolling Stone, Stereogum, and Consequence of Sound.
Pitchfork gave the album “Best New Music” status (8.5/10) and said, “He has the ear of Jeff Lynne and the vowels of Elton John as he casts his words into the sky and lets them hang there to be marveled at, plainspoken and myth-free.”  Rolling Stone offered this, In its piano-ballad gait, baroque-pop raptures and confessional sting, Josh Tillman’s fourth album as the darkly antic Father John Misty often sounds like it was made more than 40 years earlier under yet another name: John Lennon. It’s as if Tillman wrote and arranged these songs under the sumptuous, despairing spell of Lennon’s early-Seventies solo records, with time off for the late-Sixties Zombies and the Beach Boys’ Sunflower (4/5).”
Entertainment Weekly adds, “God’s Favorite Customer sounds as lush as anything he’s done — a rich tapestry of AM-radio jangle and strum (Grade: A-).” Stereogum raved, saying, “Given the nature of the album, it feels almost crass to point out that Tillman pulled it off again. But he did, in making another stunning Father John Misty album.” USA Today gave the album a perfect score (4/4) and offered this, “Four albums in, he’s never been better than on God’s Favorite Customer.”
God’s Favorite Customer also marks Father John Misty’s third top 20 entry on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart (#18). The album was also #1 on the Alternative, Americana, and Vinyl album charts.
Father John Misty’s tour dates in support of God’s Favorite Customer resume Sunday, June 24th with a show at the Hollywood Bowl and run through November 18th in Lausanne, Switzerland at Les Docks. Father John Misty will also headline Red Rocks August 15th (with TV on the Radio).
God’s Favorite Customer is available now on Bella Union via [PIAS]

What people are saying about Father John Misty’s God’s Favorite Customer:
“His most personally revealing album yet… A heady journey through excess, absurdity and 21st–century mores from arguably the world’s most eloquent singer–songwriter.” **** –
**** – MOJO
“Blurring the lines between artist and alter-ego and trading humour for heartbreak on a concise record that’s as sombre as it is satisfying.” [8/10] – Exclaim!
“It really is glorious… There is little artifice here, no witty asides; It’s blinding at times, and that’s what makes this journey so exciting.” [****, Album of the Month] – Uncut
“Utterly beautiful… Father John Misty delivers a record that’s on another level.” [*****] – DORK
“God’s Favorite Customer is his most succinct effort yet, rarely ever breaking from the album’s overall narrative…As always, his most brutally honest lyrics are his most profound.” – Consequence of Sound
