Father John Misty - “Disappointing Diamonds Are the Rarest of Them All” / “Just Dumb Enough to Try”

New MusictheneedledropComment

Father John Misty makes his official return to love songs with his new singles “Disappointing Diamonds Are the Rarest of Them All” and “Just Dumb Enough to Try.” On these songs, Tillman takes a sarcastic but charming tone similar to that of I Love You, Honeybear. The new singles are self-aware and self-deprecating, with Tillman singing about love while at the same time acknowledging his inability to speak on the subject. In addition to the new singles, Father John Misty announced his next album God’s Favorite Customer, which will officially be released on June 1 via Sub Pop.

Shortly after these singles dropped, Father John Misty hit his Facebook followers with another dose of self-aware humor in the form of an image macro reading “When your album leaks a month early” over Tillman’s exasperated expression. Our hearts go out to him; this isn't his first rodeo with this sort of thing. At least he had the foresight to make his album cover the perfect template for the situation.

Father John Misty’s last album was 2017’s Pure Comedy, Anthony's album of the year.
