June 4 street date. From the moment she began writing her new album, Japanese Breakfast's Michelle Zauner knew that she wanted to call it "Jubilee". After all, a jubilee is a celebration of the passage of time - a festival to usher in the hope of a new era in brilliant technicolor.
Zauner's first two albums garnered acclaim for the way they grappled with anguish; "Psychopomp" was written as her mother underwent cancer treatment, while "Soft Sounds From Another Planet" took the grief she held from her mother's death and used it as a conduit to explore the cosmos. Now, at the start of a new decade, Japanese Breakfast is ready to fight for happiness, an all-too-scarce resource in our seemingly crumbling world.
Inspired by records like Bjork's "Homogenic", Zauner delivers bigness throughout - big ideas, big textures, colours, sounds and feelings. At a time when virtually everything feels extreme, "Jubilee" sets its sights on maximal joy, imagination, and exhilaration.
