Jack Antonoff of Bleachers
has released his first song since 2017's Gone Now,
entitled "Alfie's Song (Not So Typical Love Song)." It's part of the soundtracking for the forthcoming film Love, Simon.
It's a bit reminiscent of Hamilton Leithauser, with driving acoustic guitars and scorching vocals that make up a magical, anthemic chorus when they all come together. He even throws in some romantic "sha la la la's," which makes it a perfect fit for a movie soundtrack. "I really need you so bad, oh yeah," he sings over and over again.
Last year, Antonoff released an MTV Unplugged
album which was recorded at The Stone Pony in his home state of New Jersey. He has also produced several critically acclaimed albums in the last year for artists like Lorde, Taylor Swift, and St. Vincent.
