So far we’ve heard two cuts from Bleachers’ upcoming album ‘Gone Now’, the recent ‘Don’t Take The Money’ and ‘Hate That You Know Me’ featuring Carly Rae Jepsen.
But for his latest cut from the upcoming LP, Jack Antonoff has shared one of his thematically heaviest tracks to date. ‘Everybody Lost Somebody’ ties back to the death of Jack’s younger sister while he was in high school. At the same time as unveiling the track, Jack also shared a lengthy statement about grief and his current feelings towards his sister’s tragic death on Twitter.
In it, he says: “I lost my sister when I was 18, that in some way informs everything I do and everything I write. This song is a massive shift and a statement for what gone now is because it’s the first time I feel conversational about this loss and not just here to document it. That’s something I could never have imagined in the past but is the heart and soul of my new work and why I felt that I had something worth releasing”.
