On November 17, 2021, the GRAMMY Museum welcomed Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner for an intimate conversation discussing her new album, Jubilee.
From the moment she began writing her new album, Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner knew that she wanted to call it Jubilee. After all, a jubilee is a celebration of the passage of time—a festival to usher in the hope of a new era in brilliant technicolor. Zauner’s first two albums garnered acclaim for the way they grappled with anguish; Psychopomp was written as her mother underwent cancer treatment, while Soft Sounds From Another Planet took the grief she held from her mother’s death and used it as a conduit to explore the cosmos. Now, at the start of a new decade, Japanese Breakfast is ready to fight for happiness, an all-too-scarce resource in our seemingly crumbling world.
In addition to being an indie rock sensation, Michelle Zauner is a masterful memoirist. Her New York Times bestselling book Crying in H Mart is an unflinching, powerful story of family, grief, identity, endurance, and the food that connects us. Zauner is currently adapting it for the screen for MGM's Orion Pictures.
Sable, the original soundtrack by Japanese Breakfast for Shedworks/Raw Fury’s newest open-world game, finds Zauner exploring a more ambient and experimental sound to match the game’s otherworldly narrative and landscapes."
