JACK ANTONOFF AND BAND ‘BLEACHERS’ RELEASE NEW SINGLE ‘ALMA MATER’ FEATURING LANA DEL REY
JACK ANTONOFF AND BAND ‘BLEACHERS’ RELEASE NEW SINGLE ‘ALMA MATER’ FEATURING LANA DEL REY | ALBUM RELEASE ANNOUNCED
Bleachers release ‘Alma Mater’ – the second track taken from their highly anticipated forthcoming new album ‘Bleachers’.
You can listen to ‘Alma Mater’ HERE. The track was premiered by Zane Lowe on Apple Music and features additional vocals from Lana Del Rey.
‘Alma Mater’ follows the magnificent comeback single ‘Modern Girl’, which Rolling Stone lauded as “quintessential Bleachers” and saw NME praise as “an exciting indication of the band’s new era”. Bleachers gave ‘Modern Girl’ its TV debut with an electrifying performance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon earlier this month. You can watch the performance HERE.
Both tracks will feature on ‘Bleachers’, the band’s fourth studio album, released Friday 8th March via Dirty Hit and available to pre-order now at https://bleachers.ffm.to/b4.
There’s a rich depth to the band’s sound on ‘Bleachers’: it is laid out in bright, soulful technicolour. The album is frontman Antonoff’s distinctly New Jersey take on the bizarre sensory contradictions of modern life, on his position in culture, and on the things he cares about. Sonically, it’s sad, it’s joyful, it’s music for driving on the highway to, for crying to and for dancing to at weddings. There’s something reassuringly touchable and concrete about its sentiment: exist in crazy times but remember what counts.
In support of ‘Bleachers’, the band have announced details of their forthcoming UK tour. The newly announced dates will see the band bring their renowned live show to the UK in March 2024, including a headline show at London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town. Tickets are available via fan presale to those who have pre-ordered the Bleachers album before 4pm on Tuesday 21st November from the Dirty Hit store HERE . Fan pre-sale begins Wednesday 22nd November at 10am GMT, with tickets going on general sale on Friday 24th November at 10am GMT. You can find more info HERE.
Described as “anthemic, life affirming pop rock” by the New York Times, Bleachers are fronted by globally celebrated, eight-time Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, musician, and producer, Jack Antonoff.
Releasing their debut album ‘Strange Desire’ in 2014, the band have built a huge, passionate following across three studio albums, becoming renowned for their impressive live show and infectious camaraderie. The band’s last album, ‘Take the Sadness Out of Saturday Night’ took them to new heights, showcasing Antonoff’s immersive songwriting and, as Variety testified, his innate skill at “supersizing personal stories into larger-than-life pop anthems”.
Both with Bleachers and as a songwriter and producer, Antonoff, who, in 2021, was credited by the BBC for having “redefined pop music”, has collaborated with the likes of Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey, The 1975, Diana Ross, Lorde, St. Vincent, Florence + The Machine, Kevin Abstract and many more.
