    Japanese Breakfast, the experimental pop project from Michelle Zauner, will release a new album album on July 14th. Titled Soft Sounds From Another Planet, it’s Zauner’s second full-length under the moniker following one of 2016’s best albums, Psychopomp.

    Soft Sounds finds the songwriter continuing to mourn the loss of her mother, who passed away shortly after the completion of Psychopomp. A press release describes it as “a work of self-reflection that looks out at the cosmos in search of healing, finding inspiration in science fiction, outer space, and the Mars One Project.”

    As a first look, Zauner has shared a new song called “Machinist” and its corresponding music video. Zauner directed the clip herself and had this to say about the whole project:

    “This is my fourth music video working collaboratively with my Director of Photography, Adam Kolodny. 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.”
