Father John Misty appeared on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night to debut another song from his upcoming album, Chloë and the Next 20th Century. With the backing of a full band, including a string section, the artist otherwise known as J. Tillman showcased a tender ballad called “Goodbye Mr. Blue.” Watch a replay of the performance and listen to the studio recording below.
“Goodbye Mr. Blue” is the third single from Chloë and the Next 20th Century, following the songs “Funny Girl” and “Q4.” Tillman announced the album in true Father John Misty fashion, mailing a mysterious vinyl to fans that featured a spoken word message.
