Michelle Zauner has announced her third Japanese Breakfast album: Jubilee is out June 4 via Dead Oceans. Zauner has also shared the self-directed music video for lead single “Be Sweet.” The visual features Zauner and Mannequin Pussy’s Missy as X-Files agents investigating the paranormal. Watch below.
“After spending the last five years writing about grief, I wanted our follow up to be about joy,” Zauner said in a statement. “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 follows Zauner’s 2017 album Soft Sounds from Another Planet. “I wanted to push it as far as it could go, inviting more people in and pushing myself as a composer, a producer, an arranger,” she said of the process behind her new record.
In addition to the new record, Zauner will release her memoir Crying in H Mart on April 20. The book is an expansion on her 2018 piece for The New Yorker by the same name.
