Jack Antonoff didn’t exactly mean for Bleachers to be a big secret. It just sort of happened that way.
“I didn’t do the process this way because I wanted it to be a giant secret; it was more of a necessity,” Antonoff explains over the phone from Austin, Texas. “It was very strange because a big part of my work is sharing it. I thought a lot about what I was doing and the fact that I was coming from another band. I just didn’t want people to chatter about it without actually hearing what I was doing. I knew the music had to come first.”
Music, as it turns out, has always come first for Antonoff. The recent Taylor Swift collaborator can count three massive musical projects on his resume: Steel Train, Fun, and his current foray into solo music-making, Bleachers. Tinged with nostalgic 80’s synth-rock and emotional melodies, Bleachers’ debut drew mass critical acclaim in 2014, which makes it all the more poignant that Antonoff decided to wait to announce its conception until just moments before its birth.

“Music is obviously the most important element of all of it,” the artist expresses. “I didn’t want people talking and wondering about it, though there were a million times that I wanted to say, ‘Hey, I’ve been working countless hours in the middle of the night on this!’”
