Jack Antonoff’s forthcoming sophomore album is out June 2
Bleachers have announced a new album, called Gone Now. The follow-up to 2014’s Strange Desire is released June 2nd via RCA Records.
Jack Antonoff unveiled the Gone Now cover art via Instagram, alongside a caption detailing the full track list. The album includes promotional singles “Don’t Take The Money”, which was written with Lorde, and “Hate That You Know Me”, featuring guest vocals from Carly-Rae Jepsen.

After revealing Gone Now’s cover and tracklisting, Antonoff wrote about the album in a series of tweets:
“Gone Now is work I’ve been making for the past 2 years in a small studio I built in my apartment. It was very important to me to be alone in my home space where I could not escape the weight of my life and what I needed to write about. Everything at home can be terrifying in a way. Everything was there looking at you in your best and worst moments. All the walls. The album sounds exactly what it was – someone alone in a room trying to make sense of loss and how to move on. There is also an amazing cast of friends and idols who pop in for moments or send me things”.
The singer also shared a new Lena Dunham-directed video for “Don’t Take the Money”, which features a cameo from Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development), who presides over Antonoff’s candy-coated wedding ceremony. Watch the video below:
Last month, Jack Antonoff and Bleachers performed an original score of John Hughes’ classic 1985 film The Breakfast Club in Los Angeles. He is currently taking his childhood bedroom on tour.
