The Japanese House, whose real name is Amber Bain, has announced her second album.

The follow-up to her 2019 debut 'Good At Falling' is called 'In The End It Always Does' and will arrive on June 30 via Dirty Hit.

Co-produced by Bain with The 1975's George Daniel and Chloe Kraemer, the record also features Daniel's bandmate Matty Healy, Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, MUNA's Katie Gavin, and more. Bain commented:

"I’d never worked with a woman or queer person [in that way] before. It’s nice to have someone who completely understands your standpoint and shared experience. Also, I say ‘she’ in every song… so it’s important that someone understands that."

The news comes with the delicate, airy ballad, Sad To Breathe, which follows March's single Boyhood. Bain added: "I wrote Sad To Breathe some time ago, it’s one of the oldest songs on the record. It was very different back then; it’s gone from being solely electronic to what it is now, mostly live/acoustic instrumentation. It’s about that desperate feeling when someone leaves you and the disbelief that they could. It’s funny you could have those kind of insane dramatic thoughts, that feel so real at the time, but can by some miracle look back in fondness to your entire life being ruined. It all circles back around."
