Tonight, Beats 1 will air a conversation between Father John Misty and Elton John. During the latest episode of Elton’s show “Rocket Hour” (which airs in full tonight at 10 p.m. Eastern), the two discussed the analog recording process behind the new album Pure Comedy. When Josh Tillman described his first two Father John Misty albums as “Pro Tools Frankensteins,” Elton chuckled. “What you end up with is space,” said Elton of recording analog. “I’m afraid with Pro Tools you’re always tempted to put everything but the kitchen sink on things.” Listen to excerpts of the conversatoin below. Pure Comedy is out April 7 via Sub Pop/Bella Union.
