“Japanese Breakfast is back with a new single called “Essentially.” The one-off single was part of a collection of tracks recorded for W Records, the boutique record label launched by W Hotels in 2018. Past contributors to the series have included artists like Amber Mark, Perfume Genius, and Roosevelt.
Recorded in the W Sound Suite at W Bali, the song explores the same fascination with synth-heavy dance-pop present on her 2017 album Soft Sounds From Another Planet. “I was originally going to record a different song but decided to write something on the fly once I arrived in Bali,” songwriter Michelle Zauner shared in a press release. “I like the challenge of writing and arranging quickly and intuitively sometimes, and I had just bought a Native Instruments Maschine and wanted to explore a lot of the sample libraries it came with and work on the synths that were at the studio. It was a very idyllic place to work.”” - SPIN, Rob Arcand, April 26 2019

We apologize if we have gotten any of the lyrics wrong.
♪ lyrics ♪
Ignore me sensually, I won’t admit that they were right
Who was I to judge your brand of loneliness?
Who was I to think I was someone above desire?
Love me sexually, love me like someone else’s wife
How is it you fall asleep so easy?
Who is it you’re dreaming of tonight?
How lovely essentially (Love, the thing that you can’t buy)
Love me essentially (Hug me ‘til I fill up your time)
Well you got it all wrong if I’d been what you’re after
When you’ve got it all wrong I can’t find what you want
I lie awake to reach for the soft sound in the night
Try my best to swallow up the jealousy
Try to learn to fall hard back in love with all the sad
Love you essentially (Love, one thing that you can’t buy)
Love you essentially (Hug me ‘til I fill up your time)
When you’ve got it all wrong I’m finally what you’re after
I got it all wrong, I don’t know what I want
When you’ve got it all wrong and don’t know what you’re after
When you’ve got it all wrong if I found what you want
