Track is first effort from Jack Antonoff following his split from Lena Dunham.
At a little past midnight on Tuesday (Jan. 16), Bleachers frontman Jack Antonoff surprised fans by tweeting a link to their latest release titled "Alfie's Song (Not So Typical Love Song)" for the soon-to-be-released soundtrack to the film Love, Simon, which the singer/producer is set to executive produce.
Marking the first solo song to be released by Antonoff since last year’s Gone Now album and his recently announced break up with Girls actress Lena Dunham, the upbeat and catchy love song fits perfectly with the coming of age love story it was crafted for. Love, Simon follows closeted teenager Simon (Nick Robinson), who falls for an anonymous classmate he meets online, and all the craziness and excitement that comes with being young and in love.
Directed by Greg Berlanti (Dawson's Creek, Brothers & Sisters) and written by Isaac Aptaker & Elizabeth Berger (This is Us), the movie is based on Becky Albertalli's acclaimed novel, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda and is set to be released by 20th Century Fox on Mar. 16.
