Japanese Breakfast Declares New Album Anniversary, Shares Video for New Music “Be Candy”: Watch
Michelle Zauner has announced her third Japanese breakfast album: Jubilee will be released on June 4th via Dead Oceans. Zauner also shared the self-directed music video for the lead single “Be Sweet”. The picture shows Zauner and Mannequin Pussys Missy as X-Files agents investigating the paranormal. See below.
“After spending the last five years writing about grief, I wanted our follow-up to be about joy,” Zauner said in a statement. “A third record should feel bombastic to me, and that’s why I wanted to pull out all the stops for it. I wrote ‘Be Sweet’ with Jack Tatum from Wild Nothing a few years ago. I’ve held onto it for so long and I’m so excited to finally bring it out. “
Jubilee follows Zauner’s 2017 album Soft Sounds from Another Planet. “I wanted to take it as far as possible, invite more people and myself as a composer, producer, arranger,” she said of the process behind her new record.
In addition to the new album, Zauner will publish her memoir Crying in H Mart on April 20th. The book is an extension of her 2018 piece for The New Yorker of the same name.
