With their highly-anticipated new album 'In The End It Always Does' arriving on the 30th June via Dirty Hit, The Japanese House have now delivered the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'One for sorrow, two for Joni Jones' was written with MUNA’s Katie Gavin and co-produced by The Japanese House’s Amber Bain alongside Chloe Kraemer, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Sunshine Baby', 'Sad To Breathe', and 'Boyhood' in previewing their new LP.

Speaking about the new offering, Bain said, “This is my favourite song, and I wrote it as a piece ages ago when I was playing the piano and [producer] Chloe would record me playing the piano loads with my dog on my lap. We sat on the music for ages then Katie from MUNA came down to the studio and put the rambling lyrics over music in a Joni Mitchell kind of way.

“I’m trying to encapsulate that feeling, a sort of ode to that feeling when Emma Thompson stands there and cries when she’s holding the CD in Love Actually. The lyrics are about the confirmation that my relationship was dead, and it’s the only song I’ve ever cried during the vocal take which has never happened before.”
