After announcing the release of new album ‘Take The Sadness Out Of Saturday Night’ last month, Bleachers have today unveiled new track ‘How Dare You Want More’.
The song comes with a live performance video.
“Over the past few years I found out things about my family that challenged some of the myths of our structure,” says Jack Antonoff. “I’ve felt rage, fear, darkness etc around it, but at the end of the day what I am left with is that everybody wants a little more and going out there and trying to get it is something that can produce a lot of shame in people. So… how dare you want more? How dare you go out and get what you want? How do you ask for it when you’re not sure if you even deserve it? It’s an easy song to write about the people in my life and the hardest thing to do to oneself.
“This one is the band on fire. Testing the boundaries of how close we can get to the edge without falling off. This recording could not have happened with any other group of people and it’s the direct sound of all the time we’ve spent on the road and how we’ve learned to know what each other is going to do. The band is carrying me through.”
‘Take The Sadness Out Of Saturday Night’ is released on 30th July.
