Japanese Breakfast (aka Michelle Zauner) is releasing her sophomore album, Soft Sounds From Another Planet, on July 14 via Dead Oceans. Previously she shared a video for its first single, "Machinist," and the audio for the lush ballad "Boyish." Now she has shared another song from the album, "Road Head," via its video. Zauner self-directed the video, with some help from Adam Kolodny. In the weird and wonderful atmospheric clip she hangs out with a strange creature. She has also announced some new fall tour dates. Watch the video below, followed by all her upcoming tour dates.

Zauner had this to say about the video in a press release: "'Road Head' is the fifth music video Adam Kolodny and I have collaborated on. For this one we wanted to focus on staging and an exaggerated color palette. We were inspired by Fallen Angels and Twin Peaks."

The album is the follow-up to 2016's well-received debut, Psychopomp. A previous press release said Soft Sounds From Another Planet "is a work of self-reflection that looks out at the cosmos in search of healing, finding inspiration in science fiction, outer space, and the Mars One Project."
