Father John Misty Debuts New Song 'Please Don't Die' Live: Watch

Burak Cingi/Redferns.

 Father John Misty performs on day 3 of All Points East Festival at Victoria Park on May 27, 2018 in London, England.

Father John Misty is in the midst of a mini U.K. tour before the drop of his next album, God's Favorite Customer, and he's playing through the bulk of it before a live audience for the first time.

One of the new tracks, "Please Don't Die," got the premiere treatment at BBC Radio 1's Biggest Weekend in Belfast on Friday (May 25).

The ballad shows off Misty (a/k/a Josh Tillman)'s cloud-skating range and the more sardonic (and fatalist) strains of his romantic side: he's begging for the object of his affection to be patient and understanding, especially when it comes to reading intense text messages sent during long nights out on the road.

Watch Misty perform "Please Don't Die" below. God's Favorite Customer hits streaming services and retailers June 1.
