The Japanese House, aka Amber Bain, has released a new single.

One For Sorrow, Two For Joni Jones serves as the closing track on the British singer-songwriter's second album, 'In The End It Always Does', due out on June 30 via Dirty Hit.

The plaintive piano-led offering gets its title from Bain's sausage dog, who is in turn named after Joni Mitchell. It was penned with Katie Gavin of MUNA, and co-produced by Bain and Chloe Kraemer. Bain explained:

"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."

Check out the live performance video below. It follows the previously released singles Sunshine BabySad To Breathe and Boyhood. She'll support the LP with a headline UK tour in October.
