Japanese Breakfast is the latest artist to take part in Spotify's Live at Electric Lady EP series, and recorded a cover of Weezer's "Say It Ain't So".

The eight-track Live at Electric Lady EP features renditions of songs from Japanese Breakfast's Jubilee album, BUMPER project with Crying's Ryan Galloway, and Little Big League band, as well as a cover of Weezer's "Say It Ain't So", which featured on the band's Blue Album also recorded at Electric Lady.

Japanese Breakfast's Michelle Zauner said of the EP, "Recording at Electric Lady was truly the perfect experience. The longer I've worked as a recording artist, the more I’ve realized it's the simple, stripped down songs that are the hardest to get right. Having the opportunity to revisit the core catalog of my songwriting in a room with so much history, surrounded by engineers and gear of the highest caliber, it was just a dream come true."

"I played a very sloppy basement cover of "Say It Ain’t So" once with my band in college, so it was fun to revisit it from the opposite angle, stripped down with a string quartet," Zauner added. "Craig Hendrix did the arrangement and Quartet 121 performed the hell out of it."

Japanese Breakfast's Live at Electric Lady EP is available to stream now on Spotify.
