Josh Tillman jokingly promises "100% Ed Sheeran"…

Father John Misty has released a set of short promo clips which he claims were rejected by the streaming service Pandora.

Misty, aka singer-songwriter Josh Tillman, who released his acclaimed second album I Love You, Honeybear last year, posted seven clips to Soundcloud of himself, with tongue seemingly firmly in cheek, ‘promoting’ his music and tour.

In these, Tillman promises a mixtape featuring “100% Ed Sheeran”, and says: “It gets lonely out on the road, my Pandora mixtape helps me retain some semblance of an emotional existence as I sell myself piece by wretched piece, one t-shirt at a time.”

Whether the clips were actually submitted to and rejected by Pandora is as yet unknown… have a listen below.
