Jack Antonoff and Bruce Springsteen

Bleachers have returned with fellow New Jerseyan Bruce Springsteen for the new single “Chinatown.” and another new songs called “45.” listen to both songs and find the video for “Chinatown,” directed by Carlotta Kohl. In a press release, Bleachers’ Jack Antonoff gave the following statement on his new tracks: 

“Chinatown” starts in NYC and travels to New Jersey. 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… I started to write this song with these ideas ringing in my head. to further understand who you are pushes you to further understand where you are from and what that looks and sounds like. there are pieces in that that are worth carrying forever and pieces worth letting die. “Chinatown” and “45” are both the story of this—“Chinatown” through someone else, “45” through the mirror. as for Bruce, it’s the honour of a lifetime to be joined by him. he is the artist who showed me that the sound of the place Ii am from has value and that there is a spirit here that needs to be taken all over the world.

Jack Antonoff’s second album as Bleachers album, “Gone Now”, was released in 2017. He’s kept busy in the years since, producing music for a huge range of artists, including Lana Del Rey, Taylor Swift, FKA twigs, and the Chicks. Last year, he launched a project called Red Hearse with Sam Dew and producer Sounwave. According to the press release, the next Bleachers album is due out in 2021.
