A year after her phenomenal debut as Japanese Breakfast, Michelle Zauner has announced the project’s sophomore release, with an accompanying music video.
“Machinist” is the first single from Soft Sounds From Another Planet and finds Zauner coming through with a major musical change of pace, with anthemic electronic sounds and spacey sci-fi soundscapes.
On the single, Zauner said, “The song is a sci-fi narrative about a woman who falls in love with a robot. In the video she hallucinates on rocket fuel and tears apart her spaceship in an attempt to build a body for her robot lover.”
Watch the video above. Soft Sounds From Another Planet is out July 12.
