Japanese Breakfast releases Jubilee on June 4th.

March 2022 will bring Michelle Zauner and her approaching new Japanese Breakfast album to the UK.

Gigs in Bristol, Manchester, Glasgow and Leeds have been lined up for that month, while the closing night is booked at the O2 Forum in London.

Also out is a video for Savage Good Boy starring Sopranos royalty Michael Imperioli, a track built from a headline Zauner read ‘about billionaires buying bunkers’:

“I was interested in examining that specific type of villainy, and I found myself adopting the perspective of a rich man coaxing a young woman to come live with him underground, attempting to rationalize his almost impossible share of greed and miserliness.”

“I knew I wanted the music video to be a pretty literal interpretation of that idea. I wanted to juxtapose images of this post-apocalyptic, industrial bunker with the lightness and extravagance of rococo fashion and set design.”

“Aiming for that balance, my cinematographer, Adam Kolodny, and I were really inspired by Chan Wook Park’s The Handmaiden, Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon and Sally Potter’s Orlando.”
