Japanese Breakfast, aka Michelle Zauner, has released a new single, “Boyish,” from her forthcoming album, Soft Sounds from Another Planet, which is set to release on July 14th via Dead Oceans. The song is a slow-paced plea for love with a melodic, chorus-filled guitar solo and despondent lyrics.

“Craig Hendrix and I wanted to produce this sort of grandiose Roy Orbison-esque ballad,” said Zauner. “We wanted the chorus to have big arrangements, lots of harmonies and synth strings, to create a really sweeping, melancholic effect that mirrored the nature of the lyrics. The song is about jealousy and sexual incompetence. It’s about feeling ugly.”
