Bali Island in Indonesia bring some fresh idea about new song idea for Michelle Zauner of Japanese Breakfast, As previously Japanese Breakfast became something of an indie darling and most anticipating indie act
Japanese Breakfast is the solo musical project of Korean American musician Michelle Zauner. Under the alias, Zauner has released two studio albums: Psychopomp (2016) and Soft Sounds from Another Planet (2017)
While she’s remained actively touring behind those efforts, we haven’t heard anything new from Michelle Zauner since her sophomore release. Today, she’s finally returned with a fresh track, “Essentially”.
Essentially by Japanese Breakfast for W Records
Essentially song comes as part of the inaugural single series from W Records, the label of luxury hotel chain W Hotels Worldwide. Zauner was sent to W Bali to record at the W Sound Suite studio there, with the original intention to record a completely different track.
As Zauner of Japanese Breakfast explained in a press release, arriving in Bali inspired her to “write something on the fly:” and then she write it well the song
“I like the challenge of writing and arranging quickly and intuitively sometimes, and I had just bought a native instruments machine and wanted to explore a lot of the sample libraries it came with and work on the synths that were at the studio. It was a very idyllic place to work. I usually record in cold studios, so Bali was a pretty glamorous change. I felt so lucky the day I arrived just walking around the hotel.”
“Essentially” is the first completely original track released on W Records, and it will be followed by a second Japanese Breakfast song. Proceeds from both tracks will go to a charity of her choosing, and a video for “Essentially” filmed at the soon-to-open W Philadelphia.
