Bleachers Introduce Upcoming Self-Titled Album With New Single ‘Alma Mater’

Bleachers will arrive on March 8

Jack Antonoff‘s New Jersey dreamworld is taking shape as Bleachers gears up for the release of their self-titled fourth studio album on March 8. The announcement of the album has been accompanied by the arrival of its second single, “Alma Mater,” a smoldering record featuring guest vocals from Lana Del Rey.

The hyper-sensory song positions Antonoff at its center while its instrumentals circle around him. “Some dreams I wake up thinking, some dreams are meant to die,” he ponders. “Kills your idol in the street outside in daylight.”

“Alma Mater” follows the release of “Modern Girl,” the first official Bleachers release since the arrival of their 2021 album Take the Sadness Out of Saturday Night. The upcoming album, Bleachers, marks the band’s first original output with their new label Dirty Hit — home to the 1975, Rina Sawayama, Pale Waves, and more — following the release of their live album Live at Radio City in August.

In a release, Bleachers has been described as being Antonoff’s “distinctly New Jersey take on the bizarre sensory contradictions of modern life, on his position in culture, and on the things he cares about. Sonically, it’s sad, it’s joyful, it’s music for driving on the highway to, for crying to and for dancing to at weddings. There’s something reassuringly touchable and concrete about its sentiment: exist in crazy times but remember what counts.”


Ahead of the album, Bleachers will embark on a brief, four-date UK tour. In March, they will make stops in London, Manchester, Birmingham, and Glasgow. General sale will begin on Friday, Nov. 24 at 10 a.m. GMT.
