Father John Misty has shared a surprise new live album today. The 20-track album was recorded at the Hamburg Elbphilharmonie venue on August 8, 2019. Josh Tillman is backed by the German orchestra Neue Philharmonie Frankfurt for the performance.
All proceeds from the album are set to go to the MusiCares coronavirus relief fund, set up in conjunction with the Recording Academy.
The performance of ‘Holy Shit’ from the album is streaming on YouTube now, and you can also purchase the whole thingvia Bandcamp.
Speaking of the newly formed charity, MusiCares’ Steve Boom said: “The music industry is built on the work of musicians, artists, and music professionals. It is in times like these, that the industry needs to come together to support those who are struggling, particularly those who rely on touring incomes to survive."
The Covid-19 pandemic has led a host of bands and musicians to share new music and live performances in new ways.
