Father John Misty performs in concert during day 3 of the Primavera Sound Festival on June 1, 2018 in Barcelona, Spain. 

Father John Misty took his turn in the Spotify Singles recording booth, releasing a more upbeat version of his hit single “Mr. Tillman,” as well as a stripped down cover of Gillian Welch’s “Everything Is Free," on Wednesday (Aug. 15).

First, Misty showed off his musical creativity with “Mr. Tillman,” transforming the normally low-key sounding track into an upbeat synth-pop number.

Meanwhile, the “Everything Is Free” cover showcases a more vulnerable side of the folk-rock singer.
