Japanese Breakfast announces new album ‘Jubilee’ out 6/4, watch video for lead single “Be Sweet”

Japanese Breakfast, the musical project of Michelle Zauner, has announced Jubilee, the highly anticipated follow-up to 2017’s critically acclaimed Soft Sounds From Another Planet. The new album announcement comes with the release of a video directed by Zauner herself for its lead single, “Be Sweet.” The jagged and propulsive 80’s inspired pop song premiered on Sirius XMU earlier today.

Of the song, Zauner says: “After spending the last five years writing about grief, I wanted our follow up to be about joy. For me, a third record should feel bombastic and so I wanted to pull out all the stops for this one. I wrote ‘Be Sweet’ with Jack Tatum from Wild Nothing a few years ago. I’ve been holding onto it for so long and am so excited to finally put it out there.

Jubilee is available for pre-order now and due June 4th via Dead Oceans.

Additionally, Zauner is releasing her long-awaited book based on her viral 2018 New Yorker essay, Crying In H Mart. The unflinching and powerful memoir about growing up Korean American, losing her mother, and forging her own identity is due April 20th via Knopf.
