Watch Japanese Breakfast cover Carly Rae Jepsen

They rang in the new year with a rendition of “Run Away With Me.”

Japanese Breakfast threw a New Year’s Eve show in their stomping ground of Philadelphia. And besides originals, their setlist included a Carly Rae Jepsen cover.

Michelle Zauner, her band and their opening act Gabby’s World sang the transcendent “Run Away With Me” from Jepsen’s 2015 record EMOTION. Carolyn Haynes, of the band Cult Objects, lent a hand on saxophone.

The video, shot and uploaded by John Vettese, shows Zauner jumping around on the crowded stage, her giggles occasionally getting in the way of her singing. Watch the footage here:
