Following its live debut on The Tonight Show last month, Bleachers‘ new song, “How Dare You Want More,” has now been officially released.
“Over the past few years I found out things about my family that challenged some of the myths of our structure,” frontman Jack Antonoff explains of the track’s background. “I’ve felt rage, fear, darkness…around it, but at the end of the day what I am left with is that everybody wants a little more and going out there and trying to get it is something that can produce a lot of shame in people.”
“So…how dare you want more?” he continues. “How dare you go out and get what you want? How do you ask for it when you’re not sure if you even deserve it? It’s an easy song to write about the people in my life and the hardest thing to do to oneself.”
You can download “How Dare You Want More” now via digital outlets.
The track will appear on Bleachers’ upcoming album, Take the Sadness Out of Saturday Night, due out July 30. It also includes the previously released Bruce Springsteen collaboration “Chinatown,” as well as the songs “Stop Making This Hurt” and “45.”
