Eh… WHAT ON EARTH COULD THIS BE ?
Bleachers, Jack Antonoff’s Solo Act
Onstage, Antonoff is backed by a four-piece band, but he played all of the instruments on Bleachers’ debut, which he describes as “moodier” than “I Wanna Get Better.” “I was very conscious about making an album that didn’t sound like 11 singles,” he says, adding that he received some production help from John Hill and Vince Clarke, and worked with Yoko Ono on a song that revolves around a spoken-word segment.
He also snagged Yoko Ono for a spot on the forthcoming full-length after having an idea for a spoken-word segment on one song and reaching out to the legendary artist. Antonoff didn’t expect much, but got an overwhelmingly positive response, and Ono’s participation. “Sometimes the most far-out, bizarre things are the most simple,” he says.
