Noted producer Jack Antonoff has announced a new album under his Bleachers moniker, Take the Sadness Out of Saturday Night, and shared a new song from it, “Stop Making This Hurt.” He’s also announced some tour dates. Take the Sadness Out of Saturday Night is due out July 30 via RCA. Check out the Carlotta Kohl-directed “Stop Making This Hurt” video below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art.

Take the Sadness Out of Saturday Night is the follow-up to 2017’s Gone Now. It includes two songs Bleachers shared last year, “chinatown” and “45.” “Chinatown” featured a guest appearance from none other than Bruce Springsteen and was one of our Songs of the Week.

Antonoff had this to say about the new single in the press release: “‘Stop Making This Hurt’ is what you get when we are not allowed to go play for our people. It’s a line that had been ringing in my head for years. I fell into a dark place after a loss and then starting to have that feeling of rage towards the depression—which is when you know there’s a way out. Started looking at the people close to me in my life and finding all the ways we keep ourselves from breaking through. ‘Stop Making This Hurt’ started ringing more and more in my head. Then the pandemic hit and I got the band in a room and we played like we may never play again. At that point it took on another meaning. Found myself banging at the door of the next phase of my life and to open brings up all the darkness from the past and what’s holding you back. I could intellectualize it for days but what I’m truly left with is a voice in my head shouting ‘Stop Making This Hurt.’”

As a producer Antonoff has worked with Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey, St. Vincent, Lorde, and others.
