Having spent the last month or so teasing his return, producer and songwriter Jack Antonoff aka Bleachers has now returned to share two new songs.
The new singles 'chinatown' and '45' see him link up with the legendary Bruce Springsteen for the former, and previews his long-awaited new album, which is set to land later next year.
Speaking about the new singles, he said, "'chinatown' starts in NYC and travels to New Jersey. That pull back to the place I am from mixed with terror of falling in love again. Having to show your cards to someone and the shock when you see them for yourself. Thinking you know yourself and where you are from…. having to see yourself through somebody who you want to stay.
"i started to write this song with these ideas ringing in my head. To further understand who you are pushes you to further understand where you are from and what that looks and sounds like. There are pieces in that that are worth carrying forever and pieces worth letting die.
"'chinatown' and '45' are both the story of this – 'chinatown' through someone else, '45' through the mirror. As for bruce, its the honor of a lifetime to be joined by him. He is the artist who showed me that the sound of the place I am from has value and that there is a spirit here that needs to be taken all over the world."
