Chateau Lobby #4 (in C for Two Virgins) by Father John Misty - NEW Homemade Video!!!

Joshua Tillman aka J. Tillman &/or Father John Misty is a funny, blunt & talented man who, just this morning, released a new, homemade (via an iPad) video for the 2nd single off his upcoming new album I Love You, Honeybear. The song is called Chateau Lobby #4 (in C for Two Virgins) & the new album will be released on February 10th. 

Now I want banana pancakes.

Check out Father John Misty's hilarious, official statement re: the video for Chateau Lobby #4 (in C for Two Virgins):

A few months ago, I had an idea for a video. I was going to rent a wedding chapel, get a dozen kittens and stage a kitten wedding, over which I would preside and intercut with performance footage of me lip-syncing the song which you’re hearing today, “Chateau Lobby #4 (in C for Two Virgins)”.

Sounds great, right? It may have even gone viral because kittens. If a video goes viral, that means you’re reaching a wider audience, and you might even get on a chart. If you get on a chart that means you’re streaming more records, and the more records you’re streaming the more money you supposedly have for hiring kitten wranglers.

Aside from the fact that kitten wranglers are considerably more expensive than you may realize and that said-kitten wranglers all informed me there was no way we were going to be able get the outfits I had mocked up onto said-kittens, there was another extenuating factor involved in the decision to abort this music video concept and ruin the slim likelihood that I might ever get to see the Huffington Post entertainment headline “EX-FLEET FOXES DRUMMER WEDS CATS”.

That reason is that the song actually means a great a deal to me.

It’s got the #4 on it because this iteration Chateau Lobby was the 4th attempt at arranging and producing the song that did not turn out perversely sentimental. Sentimentality brutalizes emotion. Much like ironic music videos.

I don’t care if you like the video or not. The label isn’t crazy about it. Management isn’t crazy about it. I have been informed I’m basically kissing an MTV Woody award goodbye forever. I made it on an iPad on my wedding anniversary with the one I love. We ate pancakes.

I love you,


  1. A beautiful location for vows to get married. I went to my friend's wedding here this past weekend. This place is beautiful, one of the nicest locations for a wedding I've ever been. The ceremony was very nice and felt very intimate.

  2. Oooh that's good to know, Kasandra! Perhaps I'll add it to my already quite long list of dream wedding locations! ;) <3
