JAPANESE BREAKFAST - SABLE (OST)
Format: 2 x CD
Catalogue No.: 19439893752
Release Date: 06 May 2022
Sony Music Masterworks announces the release of Sable (Original Video Game Soundtrack), featuring instrumental and vocal music written by Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner for the highly anticipated, open-world video game. Japanese Breakfast is an indie rock band with Michelle Zauner as lead singer. This isn’t Zauner’s first video game contribution of the year: For the trailer to the new Sims 4 expansion pack Cottage Living, the indie musician recorded a new version of her song “Be Sweet” in Simlish, the fictional language featured in the Sims games. Drawing from her years of songwriting experience, Sable finds the musician, director and author making new explorations into ambient and experimental music, the resulting soundtrack as breathtaking and otherworldly as the game itself. Sable, hotly anticipated since being teased at E3 2018, is a unique and unforgettable journey accompanying guide Sable through her Gliding; a rite of passage that will take her across vast deserts and mesmerizing landscapes, capped by the remains of spaceships and ancient wonders. From indie game developer Shedworks and publisher Raw Fury, the game will be available September 23 with Xbox Game Pass on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC. Of the soundtrack, Zauner says, “I was so lucky Daniel Fineberg and Gregorios Kythreotis from Shedworks invited me onto this game so early on. I was immediately captivated by the world they’d built.” “It was important to me that each biome in this world felt unique. I used woodwinds and vocal layering to make monumental ruins feel ancient and unknown, industrial samples and soft synths to make atomic ships feel cold and metallic, classical guitar and bright piano to make encampments feel cozy and familiar. I wanted the main themes to recall iconic works of Joe Hisaishi and Alan Menken, to fill the listener with the childlike wonder of someone on the precipice of a grand discovery." Coming next year is the vinyl edition of the soundtrack, which will arrive as a 2-LP disc set in gatefold packaging.
