I Love You, Honeybear is the second studio album from American folk musician Josh Tillman under the pseudonym Father John Misty released on February 10, 2015 on Sub Pop. I Love You, Honeybear was recorded intermittently from 2013 to 2014 in Echo Park, Los Angeles and produced with Jonathan Wilson, whom also recorded and produced 2012’s Fear Fun.

There’s a case to be made that it sounds and acts a bit like solo-era John Lennon, Scott Walker, Randy Newman, Harry Nilsson, and Dory Previn, while taking more than a few cues from Woody Allen, Kurt Vonnegut, Alejandro Jodorowsky and Muhammad Ali.

It has a decidedly more soulful presence than Fear Fun, due in no small part to the fact that he is truly singing his ass off all over the album. The album is really characterized by the scope and ambition of the arrangements. Nearly every tune is augmented by something special, be it orchestral strings, a mariachi band, questionable electronic drum solos, ragtime jazz combos, soul singers, or what have you. Pretty sure there’s a sitar in there somewhere.

His ambition, aside from making an indulgent, soulful, and epic sound worthy of the subject matter, was to address the sensuality of fear, the terrifying force of love, the unutterable pleasures of true intimacy, and the destruction of emotional and intellectual prisons in his own voice.

This material demanded a new way of being made, and it took a lot of time before the process revealed itself. The massive, deranged shmaltz he heard in his head, and knew had to be the sound of this record, originated a few years ago while he was hallucinating in Joshua Tree; the same week he wrote the title track. Tillman chased that sound for the entire year and half they were recording. The means by which it was achieved bore a striking resemblance to the travails, abandon and transformation of loving someone.

"...lyrically and musically bold, and often quite beautiful...rewards the listener constantly." -James Christopher Monger,
