The clip stars Antonoff as the leading actor in a romantic Hollywood film, bumbling his way through many awkward takes at a climactic kiss scene. The songwriter runs down the sidewalk toward the Love, Simon premiere, where, among other blunders, he knocks over a waiter, gags profusely and gets hit by a taxi.
Bleachers performed “Alfie’s Song” earlier this month on The Tonight Show. The band also contributed three other tracks â€“ “Rollercoaster,” “Keeping a Secret” and “Wild Heart” â€“ to the Love, Simon soundtrack, with Antonoff and MÃ˜ collaborating on the duet “Never Fall in Love.”
Antonoff released his second Bleachers LP, Gone Now, in 2017. He also produced and co-wrote material for Lorde, Banks, St. Vincent, Taylor Swift and Pink last year.
