Japanese Breakfast returns today (April 26) with a new single titled “Essentially.” The record is the first of two new singles that will be released via W Records. All of the proceeds from the new songs will benefit the ACLU.

Zauner recorded “Essentially” in the W Sound Suite at W Bali. “I was originally going to record a different song but decided to write something on the fly once I arrived in Bali,” Zauner says. “I like the challenge of writing and arranging quickly and intuitively sometimes, and I had just bought a native instruments machine and wanted to explore a lot of the sample libraries it came with and work on the synths that were at the studio. It was a very idyllic place to work.”

She add, “I usually record in cold studios, so Bali was a pretty glamorous change. I felt so lucky the day I arrived just walking around the hotel.”

“Essentially” is the first original song Japanese Breakfast has released since her 2017 album, Soft Sounds From Another Planet. Japanese Breakfast joins Amber Mark, Perfume Genius, and Roosevelt to complete W Records inaugural class.
