Japanese Breakfast Shares New Single "Glider"

Japanese Breakfast has shared “Glider,” the lead single from the original video game soundtrack, Sable. The album comes out on September 24th, via Sony Music Masterworks.

Japanese Breakfast on Sable:

“I was so lucky Daniel Fineberg and Gregorios Kythreotis from Shedworks invited me onto this game so early on. I was immediately captivated by the world they’d built, a desert planet filled with mysterious natural and architectural wonders, and the story they’d imagined, one of a young girl coming of age through exploration. It was important to me that each biome in this world felt unique. I used woodwinds and vocal layering to make monumental ruins feel ancient and unknown, industrial samples and soft synths to make atomic ships feel cold and metallic, classical guitar and bright piano to make encampments feel cozy and familiar. I wanted the main themes to recall iconic works of Joe Hisaishi and Alan Menken, to fill the listener with the childlike wonder of someone on the precipice of a grand discovery.”

The Sable soundtrack features instrumental and vocal music written by Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner for the highly anticipated, open-world video game. Drawing from her years of songwriting experience, the 32-track collection finds the musician, director and author making new explorations into ambient and experimental music, the resulting soundtrack as breathtaking and otherworldly as the game itself. From indie game developer Shedworks and publisher Raw Fury, Sable will be available September 23 on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC.
