Watch: Bleachers frontman almost gets hitched in ‘Don’t Take the Money’

Back in March, Bleachers formally announced that they would be releasing a new album in the summer when they debuted their first new song in three years. Soon after pulling off a massive scavenger hunt for USBs that housed the new tune, Antonoff confirmed that the act’s sophomore album would be titled Gone Now and would see a release date of early June. On Tuesday (May 2), the group premiered the music video for the album’s lead single, “Don’t Take the Money.”

The clip follows Antonoff whose character in the video is about to get married. Before embarking on such a momentous occasion, it appears as if the groom-to-be is getting a massive case of cold feet. As he stands there, his friend (played by Arrested Development‘s Alia Shawkatasks) asks if getting married is truly what he wants. Instead of admitting that he would rather not, they go through with it.

As Antonoff’s character, his bride-to-be, and Shawkatasks stand at the altar, things take a weird turn. Watch the ridiculous, Lena Dunham-directed music video above.

“Don’t Take the Money” will be featured on Bleachers’ upcoming new album Gone Now. Gone Now is set to hit stores on June 2 through RCA Records. In support of the new album, the group began their summer trek on April 25 with an intimate show at New York’s Webster Hall.

Listen: Bleachers unleash new single ‘Don’t Take the Money’

A day or so after teasing a brand new song was on the horizon, Bleachers has officially come through with the new track. On Friday (March 31), the Jack Antonoff-led act released their first new single since their 2014 debut, Strange Desire. Instead of giving fans the track outright, Antonoff sent fans on a scavenger hunt in New York City. The scavenger hunt led to an Antonoff piñata in Union Square filled with USBs that contained the brand new song.

The new song is titled “Don’t Take the Money” and features backing vocals from Lorde. Funny enough, Lorde not only contributed vocals to the song, but she also helped Antonoff write the song according to a tweet from the fun. guitarist. This isn’t the first time, or the last we can assume, the duo has worked together; co-produced Lorde’s sophomore album Melodrama. Listen to “Don’t Take the Money” above.

“‘Don’t Take the Money’ is a phrase I say in my head all the time. It has nothing to do with actual money. It means to follow the light. Don’t ignore a gut feeling,” explains Antonoff in Twitter post.

“Don’t take the money.’ I repeat it to myself when I’m trying to stay on track. Specifically in this song I’m writing about my relationship and the verse and chorus run quickly through the past and the fight leading to the euphoria of seeing the light with someone else.”

“Don’t Take the Money” will be featured on Bleachers’ yet-to-be-titled sophomore album. The new record will reportedly be released sometime in 2017, but with this single’s release, it may be closer than we all thought.
