Father John Misty, also known as J. Tillman, left the Fleet Foxes for personal musical pursuits a couple of months ago. The break from his old band has given us a small, yet bountiful harvest of great music so far. Check out his new track "Nancy From Now On" from the upcoming album Fear Fun. The song features Tillman's downright beautiful voice over a breezy rhythmic shuffle. Just like with Fleet Foxes, Father John Misty's work reveals itself upon multiple listens. Sounds like the slow washing keyboards on "Nancy From Now On" are what makes this music more than a relaxing walk in the park. Fear Fun is out on May 1st, and if we can judge the album by its cover (above), it's going to be awesome.
