Video: Father John Misty Performs Bored in the USA on the Late Show with David Letterman.

Indie-rock’s pastor Father John Misty is not shy, and loves putting in a good show for the television cameras. Joshua Tillman may have turned up to the Late Show with David Letterman on the day, but it was definitely his nonchalant persona Father John Misty who entertained the crowd when the camera lights switched on.

The religious experience performance included not one, but two pianos, a string orchestra, a laugh track and Misty looking all brooding. The reveal of the pianola was a nice touch and allows Misty to writhe about with his microphone and curl up on the piano and show off his subtle purple socks.

We can pray for a new album I Love You Honeybear, from our father in February 2015. Apparently the title track originated a few years back when he and his partner were tripping in Joshua Tree. He could mean the National Park, or while listening to the 1987 album from U2. I don’t know. Maybe both.

I Love You Honeybear is due for release on 9 February in the UK/Europe, and 10 February 2015 in the US. No mention as yet of when the album will be released to us heathens in Australia.
