As soon as Japanese Breakfast’s new track “The Woman That Loves You” begins to radiate inside your speakers, it’s clear that you’re listening to something incredibly special. Michelle Zauner’s solo project is beginning to gain some well-deserved attention, and the upcoming debut album Psychopomp is slowly looking like it could be one of the best of the year. “The Woman That Loves You” is the newest shared track among the emotional “In Heaven” and the bright, brilliant ditty “Everybody Wants To Love You,” and succeeds in showing a more technical and skilled side of the same persona. Its hazy, shimmering synth provides just enough cushion for Zauner’s voice to find a place of enchantment, and is simply too short and sweet for just one play.
Psychopomp will be released on April 1st.
