Carly Rae Jepsen Sings Back Up On Bleachers’ “Hate That You Know Me”
Jack Antonoff’s side-project (or is it his main focus now?) Bleachers returned in March with “Don’t Take The Money,” a glorious, ’80s-inspired synth-anthem. Co-written by Lorde, the track picked up where Strange Desire left off, by sounding like a lost recording from a John Hughes movie soundtrack. The same applies to buzz track, “Hate That You Know Me.” It’s another musical time machine that takes you back to an era of big shoulder pads and even bigger hair. And it also has a pop star connection courtesy of Carly Rae Jepsen’s backing vocals.
“You’re such a heart attack, but it feels like pressure points,” the 33-year-old declares in a verse. “They pressure you right back.” The song really comes to life, however, when the savior of pop chimes in on the sugary chorus. “Sometimes I hate that you know me so well (so well),” Jack and Carly Rae sing. “Some days I, I wish that I wasn’t myself. No luck!” It’s less instant than “Don’t Take The Money,” but every bit as cute and quirky. Listen to the track and check out the tracklist of Bleachers’ sophomore LP below.
