World Cafe Playlist for 06/04/2021

Japanese Breakfast joins host Raina Douris

Michelle Zauner, of Japanese Breakfast, is on a new trajectory. Not only has she authored a New York Times bestselling memoir, called Crying In H Mart, but she’s also entered new territory with her latest album, Jubilee. The record marks a joyful sonic departure from her earlier, darker songwriting themes – We’ll hear some of the new music on the next World Cafe, as Japanese Breakfast performs live for a virtual audience. Plus, Zauner shares about ALL of it – the memoir, the album, and the stories behind them.
