Japanese Breakfast will return with new album Jubilee on June 4th via Dead Oceans. Today’s announcement comes with the release of brand its lead single “Be Sweet,” which she co-wrote with Jack Tatum of Wild Nothing.

Channeling the best of both worlds of 80s rock and pop, “Jubilee” sounds totally dance-floor ready and full of life and better days ahead with the upcoming summer. Of the song, Japanese Breakfast mastermind Michelle Zauner said:

After spending the last five years writing about grief, I wanted our follow up to be about joy. For me, a third record should feel bombastic and so I wanted to pull out all the stops for this one. I wrote ‘Be Sweet’ with Jack Tatum from Wild Nothing a few years ago. I’ve been holding onto it for so long and am so excited to finally put it out there
