The Japanese House has released a new single, ‘One for sorrow, two for Joni Jones’.
Following on from ‘Sunshine Baby’, it’s another track from her recently-announced second studio album ‘In The End It Always Does’, out 30th June via Dirty Hit.
Amber Bain explains: “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.”
