Father John Misty – “Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings”

The former drummer from Fleet Foxes, J. Tillman, will be releasing a solo album on May 1 called Fear Fun under the moniker Father John Misty. We don’t know much about this project yet, but here’s an interesting snippet from The Agency Group’s webpage for him:

“In the summer of 2011, Joshua Tillman abruptly left Seattle, lived in his van for two months, wrote a novel on mushrooms and unexpectedly began writing songs under the name Father John Misty in a haunted Laurel Canyon shack. “Fear Fun” was recorded in Los Angeles with Jonathan Wilson, and mixed by Phil Ek in Seattle. ”Fear Fun” will be released on Sub Pop May 1, 2012″

Check out the creepy video for the first single, “Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings”, which stars Aubrey Plaza from Parks and Recreation. If you like the track, go here and get it for free in exchange for your email address.
