Chloe and The Next 20th Century
Label: Bella Union
Release Date: 8th April
The world's most charismatic man returns with his 5th album, with Jonathan Wilson on production duties and providing a luxurious jazz lounge sound. Judging by the early single Tillman is playing the role of the broken-hearted Las Vegas entertainer sat on the corner of the stage, bowtie off and presenting his beating heart to the audience. Expect lush jazz and FJM's heavily quotable one-liners.
• Limited edition deluxe 2xLP box set with a gorgeous hardcover book containing both LPs pressed on clear red vinyl, a poster, and two bonus 7” singles featuring covers of Chloë and the Next 20th Century songs, performed by Lana Del Rey (“Buddy’s Rendezvous”) and Jack Cruz (“Kiss Me (I Loved You)”).
Father John Misty returns with 'Chloë and The Next 20th Century', his fifth album and first new material since the release of God’s Favorite Customer in 2018.
'Chloë and the Next 20th Century' was written and recorded August through December 2020 and features arrangements by Drew Erickson. The album sees Tillman and producer/multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Wilson resume their longtime collaboration, as well as Dave Cerminara, returning as engineer and mixer. Basic tracks were recorded at Wilson’s Five Star Studios with strings, brass and woodwinds recorded at United Recordings in a session featuring Dan Higgins and Wayne Bergeron, among others.
