Jack Antonoff Turns To Craigslist To Promote New Album

Rocker Jack Antonoff is using Craigslist.com to promote the upcoming album from his new band Bleachers.

The fun. guitarist has taken to the classified advertisements website to promote his side project's debut album, which is due for release on 15 July (14).

Antonoff posted a listing in the musicians section for the New Jersey area under the title: "Artist seeking 'Strange Desire'", referring to a lyric from one of the tracks on the new record.

He added, "'Strange desire' is something that came to me a few weeks ago when I was working on the last song I wrote for the bleachers album. The lyric is, "feeling like i never was young I followed a dream and a strange desire.

"It was just something that came out in a scratch vocal take off the top of my head and I didn't realise how important it was in that moment. That line speaks to my entire life over the past 14 years of writing and being on tour. I do feel like I'm constantly mourning a childhood I never had. Mostly because I dealt with a lot of loss in the most formative years of my life. That ties into a lot of the lyrics on the album."
