“Recording at Electric Lady was truly the perfect experience,” frontwoman Michelle Zauner says. “The longer I’ve worked as a recording artist, the more I’ve realized it’s the simple stripped-down songs that are the hardest to get right. Having the opportunity to revisit the core catalog of my songwriting in a room with so much history, surrounded by engineers and gear of the highest caliber, was just a dream come true.”

Along with the newly recorded live songs, Japanese Breakfast covered Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So,” which was originally recorded at Electric Lady for their 1994 self-titled “Blue Album.”

“I played a very sloppy basement cover of ‘Say It Ain’t So’ once with my band in college, so it was fun to revisit it from the opposite angle, stripped down with a string quartet,” Zauner says. “Craig Hendrix did the arrangement, and Quartet 121 performed the hell out of it.”
