Japanese Breakfast has shared a cover of Yoko Ono’s “Nobody Sees Me Like You Do.” It’s the second single from Ocean Child: Songs of Yoko Ono a tribute album compiled by Death Cab for Cutie’s Benjamin Gibbard featuring covers Ono’s work. Check it out below.
In a trailer for a podcast associated with the project, Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner said of Ono: “She was the most—sort of—hated woman in music for a while—so unfairly—that I think, obviously, as an Asian woman, I sided with her, and saw her as a very deep and complex artist that was being unfairly judged by the world and how difficult that must have been. And it became very symbolic for me.”
Earlier this month, David Byrne and Yo La Tengo shared the compilation‘s first single: A cover of Ono’s “Who Has Seen the Wind.” Last October, Japanese Breakfast covered Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So” for Spotify’s Live at Electric Lady series.
