Japanese Breakfast has shared her first new single in two years, "Essentially".
"Essentially" is the first of two tracks that Michelle Zauner will release through W Hotels' label, and arrives as the first taster of new music since 2017's Soft Sounds from Another Planet.
The new single was recorded in the W Sound Suite at W Bali. On the new single, Zauner says, "I was originally going to record a different song but decided to write something on the fly once I arrived in Bali. 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."
