The musician, real name Josh Tillman, hasn't released new music since August 2020, which saw him drop two songs titled "To S." and "To R.".

Over the weekend Father John Misty uploaded an eerie black and white clip on Instagram showing a car under a spotlight overlooking city lights, and it's soundtracked by what fans think is a new song.

One user commented, "He returns when we needed him the most," while another added, "Holy fuck, new album is coming? Yessssssssssssssss."

Last year Father John Misty released Anthem +3, an EP of Leonard Cohen, Yusuf/Cat Stevens and Link Wray covers as part of Bandcamp Fridays.

He's yet to follow up his 2018 Father John Misty album God's Favorite Customer.
