Father John Misty—the former Fleet Foxes member Josh Tillman—has announced the follow-up to his great 2012 album Fear Fun. I Love You, Honeybear is out February 9 in Europe via Bella Union and February 10 everywhere else via Sub Pop.
The album was produced by Tillman and Jonathan Wilson (who also worked on Fear Fun), mixed by Phil Ek, and mastered by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound.
In addition to the standard digital, CD, and 2xLP editions, the album will receive a limited edition deluxe 2xLP alternate cover on tricolor vinyl housed in something called a "Dioramic, Meta-Musical Funtime gatefold jacket". All CDs and LPs will come with a fold-out poster featuring photos by Emma Tillman, design from Alia Penner, and extensive “Exercises for Listening” written by Josh Tillman. CD and LP pre-orders will come with eight demos on cassette while supplies last.
