Father John Misty with Britten Sinfonia

conducted by Jules Buckley

Backed here by a full orchestra in his only European performance for 2022 – one of only two performances of this project worldwide – Father John Misty's brooding, delicate music is given new layers. 

His fifth album and first new material since 2018, Chloe and The Next 20th Century (released in April 2022) includes the upcoming single ‘Funny Girl’, a swirling ditty to the small characteristics we fall in love with, with emotive strings and a rolling vintage feel.

A prolific writer of raw, vulnerable songs about love, despair and dark beauty Father John Misty is one of America’s most celebrated indie artists. His songwriting abilities have seen him write songs for the likes of Beyoncé and Lady Gaga.
