Amber Bain (The Japanese House) has shared a new song titled “Sunshine Baby.” It features guest vocals from Matty Healy, frontman of The 1975. The Japanese House is signed to the band’s Dirty Hit label (run until recently by Healy himself) and will release a new album, In The End It Always Does, on June 30.
The track was co-produced by Bain with George Daniel and Chloe Kraemer. It follows the recent singles “Boyhood” and “Sad To Breathe,” both of which also appear on the forthcoming record. In a statement, Bain says: “‘Sunshine Baby’ is my nickname for my dog, and my ex and I alway used to lay on the beach together being sunshine babies. The chorus is kind of a submission to the end of our relationship, but singing it in a positive light. There’s a transience in every part of a relationship, and in the circle of everything it comes back around.”
The Japanese House has also announced a headline tour of the U.K. in October. See the dates below.
