Listen: Father John Misty Covers Cat Stevens

'Trouble' gets re-worked...
Father John Misty

Departing Fleet Foxes, Josh Tillman unveiled his full length debut as Father John Misty back in 2012.

With it's smooth, late summer sound and Laurel Canyon vibes, the 'Fear Fun' LP swiftly marked the songwriter out as a true talent in his own right.

Since then, though, new material has been rather thin on the ground. Contributing to the score of motion picture 'The History Of Caves' and the HBO series 'Girls', the singer has now offered a track for the soundtrack of 'ONCE I WAS: The Hal Ashby Story'.

A documentary focussing on cult director Hal Ashby, Father John Misty has decided to cover Cat Stevens' 1971 classic 'Trouble'. It's an intriguing choice, with Tillman seeming like the natural parallel for Stevens' gilded early 70s croon.

In addition to this, 'Trouble' also appears on Ashby’s cult classic 'Harold and Maude' back in 1971. Check it out below.
