Singer/songwriter Jonah Yano has shared his new single “Portrait of a Dog,” the title track of his forthcoming sophomore album entirely co-produced with BADBADNOTGOOD, out January 27th via Innovative Leisure. The new offering arrives on the heels of Yano’s stint supporting Clairo for the last leg of her North American and the entirety of her European tour dates, which wrapped up last month. He also closed the live run with a headline show of his own at Servant Jazz Quarters in London. “Portrait of a Dog” is a sweeping arrangement that finds Jonah gliding over keys and guitar with heartfelt vocals before the song swells into a winding guitar solo, and is accompanied by a video co-directed by Erin O’Connor, Matisse A-M and Kostadin Kolev.

Portrait of a Dog is described as a deeply personal recollection of a fading relationship. Beyond the co-production of BADBADNOTGOOD, Portrait of a Dog features additional guest work from Slauson Malone, Sea Oleena, with string arrangements by Eliza Niemi, Leland Whitty, and Yano himself. Yano’s forthcoming second album follows his cover of Jessica Pratt’s “This Time Around” and his 2020 debut LP souvenir.
