Japanese Breakfast has shared a new song.

Savage Good Boy serves as the third pre-release single from Michelle Zauner's upcoming LP, 'Jubilee', due out on June 4 via Dead Oceans. It follows the already unveiled cuts Posing In Bondage and Be Sweet.

Propelled by bright and breezy pop sounds and anchored with a dynamic drumbeat, the stirring track was written from the perspective of a rich man coaxing a woman into living with him underground. It comes paired with a self-directed video starring The Sopranos actor Michael Imperioli. Zauner said:

"Savage Good Boy came from a headline I read about billionaires buying bunkers. I was interested in examining that specific type of villainy, and I found myself adopting the perspective of a rich man coaxing a young woman to come live with him underground, attempting to rationalize his almost impossible share of greed and miserliness.

"I knew I wanted the music video to be a pretty literal interpretation of that idea. I wanted to juxtapose images of this post-apocalyptic, industrial bunker with the lightness and extravagance of rococo fashion and set design. Aiming for that balance, my cinematographer, Adam Kolodny, and I were really inspired by Chan Wook Park's The Handmaiden, Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon and Sally Potter's Orlando."

Japanese Breakfast will follow the album's release with tour dates across North America beginning in July. She'll also head to the UK in March 2022. Tickets are on sale now.
