Joshua Tillman’s prolific musical persona Father John Misty released a moody new video today for “God’s Favorite Customer.” The song is the title track on his recently released new album God’s Favorite Customer. This is the third video from the new album following “Mr. Tillman” and “Please Don’t Die.”
The video, directed by his wife Emma Elizabeth Tillman, follows Father John Misty as he walks drunkenly down the streets of Manhattan at night, as the sun rises. The video is shot in several long unbroken takes stitched together to show the passage of time.
Father John Misty also recently made his feature film acting debut in Hotel Artemis. He has a cameo as a small time thug named P-22. The film was directed by Drew Pearce and stars Jodie Foster, Dave Bautista, Sophie Boutella, Jeff Goldblum, Sterling K. Brown, Jenny Slate, Charlie Day and Zachary Quinto. Misty also contributed the song “Guilded Cage” to the soundtrack.
