Father John Misty drops some ‘Generic Pop Songs’, and takes over Twitter in one swoop

One day, somebody will write a novel about everything Father J did in 24 hours.
Usually, some people see Sunday as a day of rest. For Father John Misty, that sort of thinking ain’t going to work – with Father J unveiling three satirical new tracks and returning to Twitter with an almighty bang.

Released early on Sunday, Father John dropped three “Generic Pop Songs” – playing on pop’s most repeated formulas with bangers that we’re pretty sure would steal the charts in an instant. After all, Father John Misty is probably the pop star we all really need.

Father J then turned his attention to Twitter, something which he hasn’t touch since last year – spending the day answering hundreds of fan questions on all manner of topics, which include…

The wonder of L’Oreal Shampoo and the role it plays on the world around us:

How Coffee Is Coffee:

His thoughts on his former band Fleet Foxes’ latest one:

How Lorde is “MOM ON POINT”:

Offering to buy one fan some food so they don’t go and spend it out on frivolous things:

Predicting what score ‘Pure Comedy’ is going to get from Pitchfork:

Declaring that he’s a blooming big fan of Lana Del Rey:

And the fact he hasn’t seen Shrek:

One day, someone is going to write a book about how bloody brilliant today was.

Father John Misty’s new album ‘Pure Comedy’ is set to land on April 7th, featuring the already unveiled title track, ‘Total Entertainment Forever’ and ‘Ballad Of The Dying Man’. He’ll return to the UK at the end of this month for a slot at this year’s 6 Music Festival before a headline slot later in the summer at End Of The Road.
