Japanese Breakfast – Nobody Sees Me Like You Do
Japanese Breakfast (aka Michelle Zauner) has shared a cover of Yoko Ono‘s 1981 track Nobody Sees Me Like You Do, landing as the latest preview of the forthcoming Ocean Child tribute album. Zauner’s take on the song swaps its dense, orchestrally flourished soundscape for crisp, spatial production carried by clean piano chords and her own soaring vocal. Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner said of Ono: “She was the most—sort of—hated woman in music for a while—so unfairly—that I think, obviously, as an Asian woman, I sided with her, and saw her as a very deep and complex artist that was being unfairly judged by the world and how difficult that must have been. And it became very symbolic for me.” What a beautiful, gentle piano ballad.
