With her brand new album ‘Jubilee’ arriving on 4th June via Dead Oceans, Japanese Breakfast made her late night television show debut on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon!
Performing ‘Be Sweet’ from the forthcoming record, Michelle Zauner and co also performed ‘Jimmy Fallon Big!’ from 2017’s ‘Soft Sounds From Another Planet’. All about the bass player of her previous band, she told NPR, “He’d been offered a better touring gig and so he sat me down at my kitchen table and told me he had to quit the band because this other band were going to be ‘Jimmy Fallon big.’ At the time it felt like losing a brother, and there was this shame, feeling like I was never going to get there myself. Funny enough, he now plays bass in Japanese Breakfast! Now we just need to play Jimmy Fallon and the cycle will be complete!”
