Bleachers and Grimes Combine for Dark, Pained ‘Take Me Away’

Fun. guitarist's 'Strange Desires' track gets leaked, and Claire Boucher sounds great

Genuine fun. guy Jack Antonoff releases his debut solo album as Bleachers on Tuesday (June 15) and we’ve heard a few treats there-from thus far. Strange Desires, an album whose existence we officially learned about on Craigslist, now delivers a Grimes-assisted cut that wouldn’t sound out of place on recent albums by Kanye West or Blood Orange. The ethereal, pained song arrives as a leak (so enjoy it while you can) but it’s very much worth a listen, as it shows off an entirely new dimension of Antonoff’s latest work. We can also look forward to a Yoko Ono cameo on the album. Stream the new track below, via
