Papa John: Father John Misty is already teasing a new album

Father John Misty is already teasing a new album

And it could well be called ‘Pure Comedy 2’.

Ever the hard worker, Father John Misty has revealed that he’s already working on his next album, and that it’s being mixed next week.

Speaking between songs at a show at the Metro Theatre in Sydney, Australia, the singer said that things are well underway on the follow-up to this year’s brilliant ‘Pure Comedy’ LP.

We’ll take the information with a pinch of salt - especially the bit where he says the album will be called ‘Pure Comedy 2’ - but knowing how productive our Papa John is, a new album in 2018 doesn’t seem all that unlikely, and is a pretty damn exciting prospect!

We spoke to Josh Tillman for the April issue of DIY, around the release of ‘Pure Comedy’, about the pressures of fame and becoming a person he doesn’t really recognise anymore.

“If I’m going to continue to make the music I want to make and to challenge myself, then it’s not gonna get bigger from here,” he says. “I have to be OK with that. This album is clearly not a bid for mainstream success.” Read the feature in full here, and watch Tillman give an update on LP4 below.
