Father John returns, with his I Love You, Honeybear album due to drop in February. The first “official” single will come in a few weeks but this appetizer is a main course in itself. Starting with his strong vocals over only a piano and then with strings added later, the single sounds like something that could be a cross between Elton John and Hozier. He adds a laugh track to the lines “They gave me useless education, and a sub-prime loan on a craftsman home, keep my prescriptions filled, and now I can’t get off but I can kind of deal.” His first solo album Fear Fun was highly regarded and if “Bored” is any indication, I Love You, Honeybear may turn out to be one of 2015’s best.
