Watch Bleachers Cover Kanye West’s ‘Only One’
Bleachers' Jack Antonoff has a keen talent for laying down some pretty awesome covers of songs he's particularly interested in, evidenced in his recent recording of the Beatles' "Dear Prudence." Now, the singer-songwriter and indie rocker has shared an in-studio video featuring his cover of Kanye West's "Only One." You can check out the sweet clip above (via Transmitter).
This was not the first time the band has covered Yeezy's song; a fan recently captured a live rendition of it during a Bleachers show in Boston. As always, he puts his own spin on the track -- it's slowed down and there are some attractive saxophone lines added for good measure. Compare Antonoff's interpretation with the original below:
(Oh, and in a brief chat before the video, Antonoff also hints at his belief of God being a “She.”)
Bleachers’ debut album, 2014's Strange Desire, was conceptualized by Antonoff while on tour with Fun. In a recent interview, when asked to elaborate on the future of Fun., Antonoff stated, “I’m pretty focused on Bleachers at the moment, but who knows what the future holds.”
