Though you’ll more than likely be aware by now, 16 March marks the release of delightful-looking, LGBT-centred teen flick Love, Simon through 20th Century Fox.
Based on Becky Albertalli’s now-acclaimed novel Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, the film follows in-the-closet teenager Simon and his romance for an anonymous messenger with whom he met online with all the warm, fuzzy-feeling clichés of a teen rom-com certain to ensure. Greg Berlanti is on directorial duties, with the film almost-certain to be a success in 2018’s film world.
Better still, Jack Antonoff-lead indie-triumphs Bleachers lead the announcement of the soundtrack with a new song crafted especially for the film, titled Alfie’s Song (Not So Typical Love Song). Take a listen below:
With Antonoff taking the reigns of the soundtracks curation, the resulting product may be one of the finest we’ve seen in a long while and one you should rightfully get excited over. The tracklisting is as follows, whilst a re-read of our cover story with Antonoff right here is something we’d highly encourage. Pre-order the OST here.
