Japanese Breakfast‘s critically acclaimed album, Psychopomp, taps into a timeless and evasive pop tradition – where drawing on the personal turns universal. The record explores life’s inherent juxtapositions – life, death; love, pain; the present, the afterlife – through the lens of principal songwriter, Michelle Zauner. Today we’re elated to share Psychopomp with territories outside of North America (where it was released by Yellow K Records).
You can purchase your copy of Psychopomp via Pledge Music, iTunes, Amazon, or at your local record shop! Get to know Michelle a little better with this fantastic interview over at Noisey. Still on the fence? Don’t take our word for it:
“…deeply reflective, and consistently compelling”
– Loud and Quiet
“You’ll want to laugh five seconds after wanting to cry; and then you’ll just want to dance.”
– London in Stereo
“A collection of smart, steamy pop with intelligence and bite”
– The Line of Best Fit
“Self-aware and unapologetic, the foundations of Psychopomp are built on needs – emotional, physical, spiritual”
– Noisey UK
“Michelle Zauner’s ‘Psychopomp’ album is one of the year’s most deeply personal debuts”
This fall Japanese Breakfast will tour extensively with Porches in North America, returning to the UK in October. Check out all the dates here.
