Listen to the new: Grimes & Bleachers – “Entropy”
Grimes first linked up with Fun. co-leader Jack Antonoff on “Take It Away,” a 2014 song from Antonoff’s solo side project Bleachers. And now they’ve teamed up once again, this time for an absolutely dazzling pop song called “Entropy.” It’s a power-pop tune, more or less, with the same sort of sparkling production that Antonoff brought to Taylor Swift’s “Out Of The Woods.” But it’s very much a Grimes song, too, with that otherworldly echoing reverb all over Claire Boucher’s voice. The song will appear on tonight’s episode of HBO’sGirls. They’ve shared it a bit early, which is nice, since it’s also a pretty perfect Sunday-morning soundtrack. You can hear it below.

While on the road with his band, Fun., Antonoff began working on a new project during his time in different cities. For about a year he kept the project a secret until February 18, 2014 where the first single “I Wanna Get Better” was released along with the launch of Bleachers’ website, social media profiles, and a selection of tourdates. News of Bleachers was first publicly announced in a Facebook post by Brooklyn music studio Mission Sound in May 2013.
About making the album, Antonoff said, “I spent the past year working on the music but not talking about it, and eventually it became this psychotic alter-ego situation, where it was second nature to have this part of me that no one knew about. Except for a small group of people, most of which happened to be members of my immediate family, no one was aware that this music, or this album even existed … even though it existed so deeply to me.” Antonoff also cited that Bleachers was never meant to be a departure from his position in Fun. and that he will remain in the band.
