Father John Misty’s new album ‘Pure Comedy’ is coming out on 7th April, and for any of you who are going out there rushing to get the vinyl on the day, he’s given an idea of what to expect.
Papa John has shared a new unboxing video. Well, we say “unboxing”, but there really aren’t any “boxes” per se involved. Instead, he walks us through the many (very pretty) variations on the cover, the fold-out insert, liners and, of course, the record itself.
He has a bit of fun too, getting all wide-eyed with excitement and wonder, and doing a bit of nifty eyebrow-raising. It’s all done to some wonderfully retro lounge music that really adds to that slightly kitsch feeling.
You know what’s really strange though? He doesn’t say a word through the whole thing. Nada. Not a single jot. Not even a sausage. Well, he does mouth something at one point and says “yeah” in approval, but it’s mostly drowned out by some sweeping orchestral music.
