Joshua Tillman, better know by his stage name, “Father John Misty” has just released the haunting and politically charged song “Holy Hell” to his Soundcloud page. The talented singer and songwriter – who has never shied away from expressing his ideas and opinion – in this new piano ballad, expresses his concerned state after the United States presidential election. “Damn the future ain’t looking so bright…” sings Tillman in the memorable new song.

“All my friends, yeah, I’m talking to you.
The world won’t end unless we want it to.”
Is how he ends the song, pushing the audience to take responsibility for the future.
In the months leading up to the election, Tillman had strong words about the President-elect. On his Instagram page he described Donald Trump’s speech at the 2016 Republican National Convention as a “demonic clown pageant coronation of our next potential Idiot King”.
Aside from the new song, Father John Misty has also released the single “Real Love Baby” earlier this summer.
