Singer-songwriter J. Tillman, a.k.a. Father John Misty, just dropped a simple, kaleidoscopic video for the song "Chateau Lobby #4 (in C for Two Virgins)," which is one of the many tracks that will be featured on his upcoming album, I Love You, Honeybear. It's currently looking at a February release via Sub Pop Records.
While I find the video underwhelming, I'm completely swept off my feet by the song. Tillman's voice is lovely and inviting, and horn section on this thing has a spice whose origin I can't quite put my finger on. Is it South American? Middle Eastern? Maybe a mix?
The instrumentation is wonderfully layered, and the story told in the lyrics is worth diving into as well. Definitely looking forward to this record.
