Jack Antonoff Of fun. Announces New Project 'Bleachers': VIDEO


Jack Antonoff of the band fun. announced in an interview with that he's been working on a new project called "Bleachers" and has collaborated with some pretty big names to get it done: Vince Clark from Depeche Mode and Yaz, and John Hill from Phantogram, Santigold, and M.I.A. Said Antonoff in the interview:

There’s something nostalgic and ’80s and John Hughes about some of the stuff I do, but I never wanted to make anything that was in any way retro,. So I thought let’s get the guy who inspires me to write music in the first place, Vince and his aesthetic, on the album and then let’s get the guy, John Hill, whose mind only works in pushing things forward.

You can listen to "I Want To Get Better", the first single from "Bleachers" below and watch the interview AFTER THE JUMP...

  5. Hello?!? Yes, Vince was one of the original members of DM and Yaz, but he is still part of Erasure.

  7. When Fun. played at the college where we live, they invited a bunch of different college and local LGBT groups to the sound check and then went around and talked to them all, Jack the talker and leader of the effort. He was very nice, and they've done a bunch of gay-supportive activities.

    And I like the song, too.

  8. I'm not feeling the song, it kind of sounds like a demo. But Jack Antonoff is a great guy, so I'll give it a few more listens.

  9. Am a giant fan of Fun so worry that with no new 2014 Fun album yet that Jack may jump into another band? Hope everything works out okay.
