Father John Misty’s sophomore album I Love You, Honeybear is one of the best LPs we’ve heard this year, and his new video for the album’s title track is a heavy and bracing piece of work, one worthy of the album. Josh Tillman, Father John Misty’s alter-ego, co-wrote the video with his wife Emma Tillman, and he co-directed it with old collaborator Grant James. The video stars Brett Gelman (the comedian who played a naked hippie in the Mad Men series finale) and Susan Traylor (an actress who recently appeared in Greenberg) as drunk, high emergency medical technicians who try to save Josh and Emma Tillman from a gas leak. It’s a whole lot to deal with early on a Monday morning, but you can watch it below.
I Love You, Honeybear is out now on Sub Pop.
