Grimes and Bleachers have joined forces to release a brand new, exclusive track “Entropy.” “Entropy,” which premiered on last night’s episode of HBO’s Girls was co-written by both artists exclusively for the show and is now available at all digital providers. While the track is not an official single from either of the artist’s forthcoming projects, both were eager to get back to into the studio together after having collaborated on “Take Me Away” off Bleachers’ critically acclaimed debut album “Strange Desire”.
“Working with Claire is incredible. She functions completely in her own artistic space and being allowed into it has changed me as a writer deeply. In the room together there is nothing that feels off limits. We ended making this off blend of super high fi sounds mixed with the creepiest shit ever like an acoustic recorded into a computer. It was beyond special,” explained Jack.
“I’m very lucky to have a friend as talented as Jack. He really pushed me out of my comfort zone with this song and I feel very proud of our work. It was my first attempt at writing something with a country vibe,” said Grimes.
Jack Antonoff’s latest musical endeavor, Bleachers, released the debut album “Strange Desire” on RCA Records this past July. The first single “I Wanna Get Better” quickly rose to No. 1 on the alt radio chart while the second single “Rollercoaster” recently hit #4 on the chart. USA Today called the album, “full of hooks and full of heart” and Stereogum declared it “triumphant.” Bleachers made their network television debut on NBC’s Late Night With Seth Meyers and followed with performances on Late Night Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live, a follow up performance and chat segment on Seth Meyers as well as special performance on Conan and appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Bleachers’ eccentric rollout campaign has featured announcements via Craigslist, a Bleachers Hotline, artwork revealed by anonymous countrywide cake deliveries, a surprise public access television telethon called “Thank You Very Much” and even a series with Bill Nye The Science Guy.
