How's this to start your week? Bleachers is back with two new songs today!
Yes, Jack Antonoff has returned with two brand new tracks, "45" and "chinatown," the latter of which is a collaboration with fellow New Jerseyan Bruce Springsteen. "chinatown" is also accompanied by a video directed by Carlotta Kohl.
"'chinatown' starts in NYC and travels to New Jersey," says Antonoff. "That pull back to the place I am from mixed with terror of falling in love again. Having to show your cards to someone and the shock when you see them for yourself. Thinking you know yourself and where you are from…. having to see yourself through somebody who you want to stay… as for Bruce, it's the honor of a lifetime to be joined by him. He is the artist who showed me that the sound of the place I am from has value and that there is a spirit here that needs to be taken all over the world."
Of course, the new music also comes with the promise of a new Bleachers album. The album is expected in 2021, the year of better things.
Hear "chinatown" and "45" below.
