Bleachers, the rock band alter ego of pop-producing hotshot Jack Antonoff, have announced an upcoming live album, which was recorded during their recent performance on MTV’s newly revamped Unplugged series. The album is scheduled for a Nov. 10 release, and will simply be titled after the show. The 11 songs featured on the acoustic LP will feature live versions of mostly new tracks from the band's latest studio release, 2017’s Gone Now.
Bleachers was the second artist to appear on the revamped series following its return to the famous music network back on Sept. 8. Shawn Mendes was the first to perform on Unplugged last month, and is also set to release his own live album based on his televised performance, Billboard reports.
Songs from Bleachers’ small but fun personal catalogue which will appear on Unplugged include “Let’s Get Married,” “Everybody Lost Somebody,” “Rollercoaster” and “I Miss Those Days.” Two other songs on the album also capture the surprise appearance by Lorde on “Don’t Take The Money” and Carly Rae Jepsen on “Shadow.” The two pop artists each joined the band during the actual filming of the show, as seen in the video below. Lorde has been a heavily outspoken supporter for her pop colleague this past year, as Antonoff played a big role in producing her own hugely successful sophomore album, Melodrama.
The same day as the album’s announcement on Bleacher’s Facebook earlier this week, the band also shared a new music video for “I Miss Those Days.” The musical home video can be watched above, and captures Antonoff and the band having an endless amount of fun on tour, both onstage and off.
Speaking of tours, Bleachers continue to tour across North America throughout the fall with support from “Dream” singer Bishop Briggs. Tickets for select shows on their remaining 2017 tour throughout the month of November are on sale now, and can be purchased by clicking here.
