“I didn’t want that level of exposure.”

Father John Misty is currently promoting his upcoming album Pure Comedy and in a recent interview revealed he had the opportunity to audition for season 2 of Stranger Things, but declined.

While telling Rolling Stone about his desire to avoid a major label, he brought up the audition as an example of other opportunities he said turned down.

“I was asked to audition for the second season of Stranger Things,” he explains. “I didn’t want that level of exposure. I don’t want to be TV famous.”

The series is set to return August 31 with new plot details recently appearing and the promise from soundtrackers S U R V I V E that things will get darker and weirder.

Watch the teaser trailer for season 2 below.
