TRACK: Father John Misty – “Bored in the USA” + New Album Details + Tour Dates

An appropriate return for Josh Tillman aka Father John Misty. “Bored in the USA” is the first single from the forthcoming I Love You, Honeybear. Featuring a 22-piece string section backing him up, Misty laments about his “useless education, a subprime loan” and the audience finds it hilarious for some reason? It’s a bizarre performance, not on Tillman’s part… he’s no stranger to theatrics, but I’m confused which part the crowd finds funny. Sure, the guy is witty, but it’s an odd time for them to start giggling. Perhaps they were in awe up until that point. Who can say? Anyhow, that aside, it’s a fantastic song and hopefully a good indication of what’s to come. Also, “save me white Jesus” is one of the best lines I’ve heard all year. Give it a listen below followed by the tracklisting for the album and tour dates.

EDIT: Here’s the studio version…
