Father John Misty comes bearing gifts. Today, he shared the official music video for Pure Comedy album track “Leaving LA”. Capturing FJM in studio with orchestral accompaniment, the 13-minute video is a thing of grace. You can watch it below.
Directed by Grant James, “Leaving LA” is cut together from the same footage found in Pure Comedy [The Film], a short documentary about the making of the album that was released last January. James worked with FJM previously on the videos for “I Love You Honeybear” and “Funtimes in Babylon”.
FJM is currently on a break from touring. He wrapped up a European leg prior to Thanksgiving and heads out again in January 2018 with stops in Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Singapore. You can find his tour schedule below.
Along with the video, FJM shared a discount code, so fans can get 10% off everything at the Father John Misty web store – from hats and t-shirts to vinyl and more. The code is CANFLUB, and you can use it over here through December 20.
