Hey, another new Father John Misty song! FJM gave us his new album’s obnoxious and enjoyable title track “Pure Comedy” last week, and now he’s back with “Two Wildly Different Perspectives,” a piano ballad about the perils of extreme polarization. It’s less sarcastic than your average Josh Tillman joint, and it arrives with a thought-provoking video by Matthew Daniel Siskin featuring kids of various ethnicities playing with toy guns, video game guns, and real guns alike. The video is captioned, “More kids are going to die now thanks to the unbelievably selfish immigration policy of places like Saudi Arabia and the USA.” Watch below.
Pure Comedy is out 4/7 on Sub Pop.
