Father John Misty – “Pure Comedy”

Father John Misty has shared a new track called “Pure Comedy,” a song that he debuted live last month at a benefit concert in Seattle. It comes attached to a video directed by Matthew Daniel Siskin that incorporates original artwork and some memes and video footage from this election cycle, which ties into the song’s cynically political message. As a Reddit user points out, Shazam shows the full artwork (above) and a cached merchandise page indicates that a new Father John Misty LP called Pure Comedy will be out on 3/31. It will be the follow-up to 2015’s I Love You, Honeybear. Listen to the new song below.
