Listen to Japanese Breakfast cover Yoko Ono’s “Nobody Sees Me Like You Do” for the ‘Ocean Child’ tribute
Iconic musician and artist Yoko Ono will celebrate her 89th birthday on February 18th, and a lineup of contemporary artists are teaming up to honor her with the Ocean Child project, a tribute compilation organized by Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard.
The latest teaser from the project is a rendition of “Nobody Sees Me Like You Do” by Japanese Breakfast. The song was originally a lush and orchestral pop number on Ono’s Phil Spector-produced 1981 album Season of Glass; Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner reinvents it as a yearning piano ballad.
