Hear Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So” on the Cover of Japanese Breakfast Live EP


Japanese Breakfast released surprise EP as part of Spotify and famous recording studio Living at Electric Lady series. The eight-song set includes a cover of Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So”, a fitting choice as Weezer originally recorded the track at Electric Lady Studios for their eponymous 1994 debut LP, also dubbed The Blue album.

“I once played a very sloppy basement cover of ‘Say It Ain’t So’ once with my band in college, so it was fun revisiting it from the opposite angle, stripped down with a string quartet, ”Michelle Zauner said in a statement. . “[Bandmate] Craig Hendrix did the arrangement and Quartet 121 played it thoroughly.

The EP also includes live versions of songs from 2021 Jubilee, including “Be Sweet”, “Savage Good Boy” and “Kokomo, IN”. It also includes “Ballad 0” from Zauner Bumper’s side project and “Lindsey” from musician’s former band Little Big League.

“Recording at Electric Lady was really the perfect experience. The longer I worked as a recording artist, the more I realized that it’s the simple, clean songs that are the hardest to pull off,” Zauner said. “To have the opportunity to revisit the core catalog of my writing in a room with so much history, surrounded by engineers and equipment of the highest caliber, was just a dream come true.”
