Ex-Fleet Foxes Member Josh Tillman Readies New LP as Father John Misty
Not only has Tillman signed to Fleet Foxes' label, he's also using their studio guru Phil Ek, who mixed the new album, with Fear Fun being recored in Los Angeles with Jonathan Wilson (Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Jonathan Rice).
It's a little surprising that Tillman has decided to change his recording moniker, given that he has already released a string of solo albums under his given name. According to the press release, "During the summer of 2011, Joshua Tillman left Seattle to live in his van for two months, writing a novel under the influence of fungi and suddenly began to write songs under the name of Father John Misty."

Also, you can watch a video for the track starring Aubrey Plaza of Parks and Recreation over at Entertainment Weekly, and see the actress have a tantrum, eat flowers, throw a chair and generally act like a bit of a weirdo.
