This was another big interview for me. I’ve been a fan of Jack Antonoff’s music since I was introduced to his early project called Steel Train. With Bleachers he took off in a direction that was immediately appealing to me and I’ve been listening to everything he has worked on ever since.

We had an opportunity to talk about his new record, writing songs for Bleachers and writing and producing for other artists like Lana Del Ray, Taylor Swift and Lorde. We discussed his work with fellow New Jersey legend Bruce Springsteen and what lessons he’s learned from Covid.

 

Here are the songs that Jack has released so far from the upcoming Bleachers album:

“Chinatown” featuring Bruce Springsteen

“45”

 

Here is the performance of “The Whole Of The Moon,” originally by the Waterboys and referenced in the interview.
