Jack Antonoff sat down with GQ for an interview about not-his-side-project Bleachers.
Itís an annoying phrase. My whole life, Iíve been someone who likes to do a lot of different things, but Iíve specifically noticed with Bleachers, people donít like the idea of, like, two bands, two projects. Like, they both have to be labeled, and, well, which one is the main one? Which one is the side project? Itís like that phrase ďjack of all trades, master of none.Ē Which I think is a bullshit, annoying phrase. Itís just meant to scare us into doing one thing.

Vulture has a new feature length piece on Jack Antonoff and his upcoming Bleachers release:
The first thing he does when he walks onto any plane is sterilize the seat with anti-bacterial wipes, he says. ďEveryone looks at me like Iím a fucking nut, but when was the last time you saw someone clean a plane? Itís just gross.Ē He always hugs hello and good-byeóthatís not just friendliness; he avoids shaking hands. He wonít sing into anyone elseís mike and doesnít play brass instruments, because ďtalk about a cesspool for disease, a trumpet?Ē Heís an avid Uber user and jokes he hasnít been on public transit since 2001, though thatís only partly because of germs; he also saw a dude pull his...

Entertainment Weekly has an interview and a exclusive stream of a song written by Jack from fun., for Super Why.
I wanted [the songs] to feel huge and larger than life and epic. I donít know if there really should be much of a difference between a childrenís show and a Bruce Springsteen concert. I think everyone should leave with the same feeling, which is hopefulness.

Jack Antonoff (fun., Steel Train) has posted an op-ed titled "Straight Allies: The Importance and the Realities" at The Huffington Post. If you've got some time today, check it out, please share it - and all that.
From the ArticleA large part of being an ally is establishing ourselves within our social and professional circles as people who will not tolerate homophobia in any form or under any circumstance. This is also, in many ways, the hardest part. It goes without saying that bringing up weighty issues can be awkward in social situations -- even more so, standing up to a colleague or a friend. My experience has led me to believe that people are excessively uncomfortable and...
