Pop-rock act Bleachers released the new song "Alfie's Song (Not So Typical Love Song)" on Jan. 15. "Alfie's Song (Not So Typical Love Song)" is the lead single from the "Love, Simon," a movie about the titular character coming out as gay in high school. Frontman and LGTBQ advocate Jack Antonoff is the curator for the soundtrack and he released "Alfie's Song" as the first taste.
Under his band Bleachers, Antonoff wrote "Alfie's Song (Not So Typical Love Song)" with pop songwriter Ilsey Juber and One Direction star Harry Styles. Bleachers is known for its anthemic music that could soundtrack a movie and Jack finally does so with "Love, Simon." He dials it back to the '80s with a rush of guitar and a saxophone break backing his new-age love song. "But god, I love those days we couldn't get out of bed," Jacks sings. Bleachers' "Alfie" is a whirlwind of emotions rolled into a nostalgic pop track.
"Alfie's Song (Not So Typical Love Song)" is now available on iTunes and Apple Music. "Love, Simon" opens in theaters on March 16.
