Japanese Breakfast on Cosmic New Album, Lifelong Search for Community

When Michelle Zauner, who records as Japanese Breakfast, set out to record her second proper full-length, she looked to the stars for inspiration. What became Soft Sounds From Another Planet was originally a sci-fi concept record about falling in love with a robot and joining the Mars One project. “I was really fascinated by people who just did one thing,” she says, thinking out loud about her fascination with a group of humans who re-dedicated their lives to living in outer space. (Mars One co-founder Bas Lansdorp even tweeted his enthusiasm for the album this summer.)
