Japanese Breakfast Shares Video for New Single “Posing in Bondage,” Announces Tour

Japanese Breakfast (Michelle Zauner) has shared a self-directed video for her new single “Posing in Bondage.” It is the latest release from her forthcoming album Jubilee, which will be out on June 4 via Dead Oceans. She has also announced a string of summer and fall tour dates, which can be viewed below, along with the new video.

Zauner speaks about her new song in a press release: “‘Posing in Bondage’ is a ballad about loneliness and longing, a song about two people who want so badly to connect but are never quite able to do so. No place felt lonelier than an empty grocery at 1 AM. The video is actually an epilogue to the one that will accompany our next single, here presented out of order.”

Last month, Zauner shared the song “Be Sweet” (which was #1 on our Songs of the Week) upon the album’s announcement, and would later go on to perform it on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

In a previous press release, Zauner had this to say about her new album: “I’ve never wanted to rest on any laurels. 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.”

Zauner’s most recent album, Soft Sounds From Another Planet, came out in July 2017 on Dead Oceans and was one of our Top 100 Albums of 2017. Her upcoming memoir, Crying In H Mart, will be out April 20 on Knopf.
