Father John Misty sings Scott Walker

with Jules Buckley and the BBC Symphony Orchestra

Father John Misty

Father John Misty sings the songs of Scott Walker, as Jules Buckley conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra in this salute to an artist who remade popular music in his own unique image. 

One of America's most celebrated artists, Misty takes centre stage in this symphonic celebration of Walker's legacy, including It's Raining Today, Copenhagen and The Old Man's Back Again in orchestral arrangements constructed and conducted by BBC SO Creative Artist in Association Jules Buckley. 

'I'm an outsider for sure' said Scott Walker. But over a six-decade career he sang songs that redefined popular music, breaking hearts as well as artistic boundaries. Whether recording chart-topping singles or writing for the Royal Opera; from arthouse cinema to collaborations with Pulp and Julian Cope; Walker's songs are a perfect fit for Father John Misty, another legendary singer-songwriter who plays by no rules but his own. A genre-busting salute to the man that David Bowie called 'my idol'.
