Lana Del Rey and Margaret Qualley make cameos in latest visual for Bleachers

Bleachers have paired their new single “Alma Mater” — the latest single off their upcoming self-titled LP — with a new video.

The Alex Lockett-directed video finds Jack Antonoff taking an evening drive through his native New Jersey, encountering the creatures of the night, including a saxophone-playing construction worker and a religious zealot with a “Kill Your Idols” sign (a nod to the song’s lyrics).

Lana Del Rey, who contributes vocals to the single, also pops up throughout in an almost-ghostly manner, while Antonoff’s wife Margaret Qualley appears on a street corner in the final moments of the video.


In a release, Bleachers — out March 8, 2024 — has been described as being Antonoff’s “distinctly New Jersey take on the bizarre sensory contradictions of modern life, on his position in culture, and on the things he cares about. Sonically, it’s sad, it’s joyful, it’s music for driving on the highway to, for crying to and for dancing to at weddings. There’s something reassuringly touchable and concrete about its sentiment: exist in crazy times but remember what counts.”

Two months after the release of Bleachers, Antonoff and company will embark on a North American tour. “Just wait till you see this shit,” Antonoff teased of the trek.
