Father John Misty shares macabre “Please Don’t Die” animated video

fjm-please-dont-die

Father John Misty‘s new album, God’s Favorite Customer, is out this week and, ahead of that, he’s just released the video for “Please Don’t Die.” Director Chris Hopewell, who has made videos for Radiohead, Franz Ferdinand, The Knife and others, plays off the song’s title and sends a despondent FJM into an underworld of dancing skeletons and other surreal death imagery, all done with lovely stop-motion animation. You can watch that below.

With his 2018 tour just underway in Europe, Father John Misty plays this weekend’s Primavera Sound and a few more festivals in that part of the world before returning to North America, where his itinerary has stops at Hollywood Bowl, Red Rocks and NYC’s Panorama fest. Updated dates are listed below.
