Soft Sounds From Another Planet out July 14 on Dead Oceans via Inertia Music

“Another great Japanese Breakfast album in the style of Psychopomp
would’ve been a gift, but this is something better. It’s proof that we’re
only beginning to glimpse Zauner’s capacity for evolution.”


“Mines the dark drama of Vangelis and the melancholic fall-out from
Kanye West’s 808s & Heartbreak.”


“Critics everywhere best start making room on their Best of 2017 lists…
Machinist’ is proof that Zauner is growing and changing in an
adventurous, unafraid way. Even the sky isn’t the limit.”

Paste Magazine

Today, Japanese Breakfast has shared a music video for “Road Head“, the latest from Soft Sounds From Another Planet, the much anticipated follow up to the critically acclaimed Psychopomp. Of the video, Michelle Zauner says: “‘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 colour palette. We were inspired by ‘Fallen Angels‘ and ‘Twin Peaks‘.

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. The album is available for pre-order now and due out next Friday July 14 on Dead Oceans via Inertia Music.
