Father John Misty shares 'Things It Would Have Been Helpful to Know Before the Revolution'
Father John Misty has released a beautiful, stop-motion video for new single, Things It Would Have Been Helpful to Know Before the Revolution.
The thought-provoking track is a standout from Father John Misty’s recent album, Pure Comedy and is directed by Chris Hopewell – the innovative filmmaker behind Radiohead’s Burn the Witch video. The song‘s political themes and subtle humour are captured brilliantly throughout and features puppets navigating themselves through a post-apocalyptic landscape resulting from an environmental disaster.
The puppets from the video will be auctioned off and the proceeds donated to the Environmental Defense Fund. The auctions will take place between 3-13 August and donations will run via Father John Misty’s official eBay page.
Eric Pooley, Senior Vice President at Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) said: “Father John Misty's new video is a powerful statement -- a postcard from a world we never want to visit. EDF is proud to partner with Father John Misty, and why we work every day to support the 'visionaries among us' who can help forge a better, more optimistic future.”
Father John Misty will be touring his latest album in the UK this winter and two additional dates have been added at the Hammersmith Apollo and the Brighton Dome.
