Watch Jack Antonoff Sing About ‘Magic Pancakes’ on the ‘Late Late Show’
There’s been a lot of talk about the future of Jack Antonoff’s Grammy-winning outfit, Fun., and when the indie-pop trio will record a follow-up to 2012’s Some Nights. Though Antonoff has been fairly adamant that, for now, his focus is on his solo project, Bleachers, he did unveil some new music last night (June 15) on the Late Late Show With James Corden… well, kind of.
Corden enlisted Antonoff’s help in bringing to life the work of 11-year-old musical prodigy, Owen Roberts. Antonoff joined Roberts, Corden and the Late Late Show band for a pretty hilarious rendition of Roberts’ song, “Magic Pancakes.” Watch the results above.
Of course, such a performance required intensive discussions picking Roberts’ brain about his creative motivations and the like. Check out their backstage deliberations below.
Antonoff -- who appeared at Bonnaroo last weekend -- will kick off a tour with Charli XCX on July 21 in San Diego, Calif. From there, they have dates scheduled through Aug. 12 when the tour will wrap up in Columbus, Ohio.
Antonoff also recently announced he would launch his own music festival, Shadow of the City, in Asbury Park, N.J., on Sept. 19. The lineup will include Bleachers, Charli XCX, Vic Mensa, Cults and more.
