And I really wanted to give my all for it.
Jubilee follows that of 2017 Sweet sounds from another planet and soon after the release of Zauner’s literary debut Crying at the H Mart, Zauner’s memoirs of his late mother and the Korean food they bonded with. however, Jubilee has a happier sound than the first two Japanese Breakfast albums, as evidenced by “Be Sweet”.
“I was really scared that everyone would get mad at me and think that I was, like, going completely pop, but I think a lot of people really liked that,” Zauner said. Rolling stone.
“Even our fans are like, ‘She always does this thing where she releases a song and it doesn’t sound like the rest of the album.’ I think I built a little more confidence. ‘Be Sweet’ is obviously our most pop song. It’s like the most radio ready of the songs I’ve released. There really is a chorus, but I think the rest of the songs are really wacky and weird.
