Father John Misty Previews New Song On SNL


fatherjohnmisty4US folk singer Father John Misty has previewed a brand new song from his upcoming album ‘Pure Comedy’ on this weeks edition of Saturday Night Live. The song titled ‘Total Entertainment Forever’ has gained notoriety for containing a reference to ‘bedding Taylor Swift’.

The former Fleet Foxes man is no stranger to controversy. Over the course of his relatively young solo career; Misty has trolled Ryan Adams, claimed responsibility for stealing a crystal from an L.A juice bar, promoted a fake streaming service and parodied Kanye West’s ‘The Life of Pablo’ clothing range.

His latest head-turning event took place on the March 4 edition of SNL. Misty gave a compelling performance of his new song ‘Total Entertainment Forever’; however, listeners became instantly fixated on the songs lyrics after a sharp opening line involving Taylor Swift.

In the first two lines of the song, Misty states: “Bedding Taylor Swift every night inside the Oculus Rift/After mister and missus finish dinner and the dishes”

The song continues with a gradual feeling of disenchantment – before ending with: “When the historians find us we’ll be in our homes, plugged into our hubs, skin and bones, a frozen smile on every face, as the stories replay, this must have been a wonderful place”

‘Total Entertainment Forever’ is due to feature on Misty’s third studio album ‘Pure Comedy’, which is set for release on April 7. The record has been produced by both Misty and Jonathan Wilson and will be made available via Sub Pop Records.
