The Japanese House shares new single ‘One for Sorrow, Two for Joni Jones

It is taken from the upcoming album ‘In the End It Always Does’.

The Japanese House has released her latest single ‘One for Sorrow, Two for Joni Jones’. Watch an accompanying live performance video below.

It is the latest single to be taken from her upcoming second studio album ‘In the End It Always Does’, which is set for release on 30th June via Dirty Hit Records.

The Japanese House, aka Amber Bain, wrote the new single with MUNA’s Katie Gavin, and it is named after Bain’s sausage dog, who in turn is named after Joni Mitchell.

Speaking about the song, Bain has said: “This is my favourite song, and I wrote it as a piece ages ago when I was playing the piano and [producer] Chloe would record me playing the piano loads with my dog on my lap. We sat on the music for ages then Katie from MUNA came down to the studio and put the rambling lyrics over music in a Joni Mitchell kind of way.”

“I’m trying to encapsulate that feeling, a sort of ode to that feeling when Emma Thompson stands there and cries when she’s holding the CD in Love Actually. The lyrics are about the confirmation that my relationship was dead, and it’s the only song I’ve ever cried during the vocal take which has never happened before.”

The Japanese House will support The 1975 at Finsbury Park on 2nd July, and will play the following UK headline shows:


12: Glasgow, SWG3

14: Newcastle, Newcastle University
