Songwriter speaks to Zane Lowe...
Father John Misty

Father John Misty has spoken about his involvement with Lady Gaga's recent album 'Joanne'.

Josh Tillman became a somewhat unlikely pop presence last year, starring in a video with Lana Del Rey and contributing to Beyoncé’s 'Hold Up'.

The songwriter also worked extensively on Lady Gaga's 'Joanne' project, spending time in the studio with the pop megastar.

The experience seems to have rubbed off, too - new Father John Misty cut 'Real Love Baby' was initially penned for Lady Gaga.

Speaking to Zane Lowe for Beats 1 he said: “I was writing a bunch of songs for (Lady) Gaga and that was one of them. It just sounded so good with me singing it I just couldn’t part with it”.

Continuing, he said that working with Gaga “was way more immersive than” his work with Beyoncé. With Gaga, “We were hanging. It was, like, five in the morning, someone handing me an acoustic guitar and I’m just like, ‘What are hands.’ We had so much fun. Mark (Ronson) - just watching him produce, it was amazing.”

Check out the interview below.

Father John Misty's new album 'Pure Comedy' will be released on April 7th.
