In September last year, Josh Tillman stopped by Third Man Records’ Nashville headquarters on an otherwise ordinary Tuesday afternoon and surprised them all with a lunchtime solo, acoustic set before his sold-out Ryman Auditorium performance. They, of course, had their 1955 Scully Lathe at the ready to capture the occasion. The recording of this Blue Room performance will be available for purchase on September 28, 2018, and pre-orders are available now. For a preview of what’s to come, listen to “So I’m Growing Old On Magic Mountain (Live At Third Man)” HERE.

As is typical for direct-to-acetate recordings in the Blue Room, Josh warmed up the room (and Third Man’s engineers) with two songs before we started cutting the LP. He began with the debut performance of his newly penned “Mr. Tillman” (foreshadowing its release as the first single on God’s Favorite Customer 9 months later). Third Man then used the second song as an opportunity to carve a 12″ on-the-spot single of “Now I’m Learning to Love the War,” which was promptly handed it to a lucky attendee for safe keeping. If you want to know more about that, you’ll have to scour the depths of FJM’s fan net…

Live at Third Man Records covers songs from all three Father John Misty albums out at the time of its recording, heard here stripped totally bare. Watch the cutting needle drop (and then drop again) in this video released by Misty’s team shortly after the performance, and preview “Chateau Lobby #4 (in C for Two Virgins)” the last song on the A-side here.
