Japanese Breakfast (aka Michelle Zauner) has released the video for “Road Head,” the third single from her much-anticipated Soft Sounds From Another Planet.

The eerie clip, influenced by Fallen Angels and Twin Peaks, is directed by Zauner herself. In her fifth collaboration with director of photography Adam Kolodny, the duo decided to focus on staging and an exaggerated color palette, according to a press release.

The follow-up to her highly acclaimed debut LP Psychopomp is a self-reflective work about healing based in science fiction. Inspired by outer space, Zauner’s writing creates its own thematic galaxy. Previously released singles “Machinist” and “Boyish” already show maturity in Japanese Breakfast’s sound, making us thrilled for what the remainder of the project has to offer.

One of the album’s Paste is most excited about this month arrives July 14. Check out the “Road Head” video above and below, find upcoming Japanese Breakfast tour dates, including the conclusion of her tour with (Sandy) Alex G and Cende, dates with Tegan and Sara, and a headlining tour supported by Mannequin Pussy and Spirit of the Beehive.
