The Love, Simon soundtrack is sounding pretty good.

Indie pop musician Jack Antonoff, previously of the pop troupe Fun who has since worked under the stage presence Bleachers, offers up an up-tempo jam reminiscent of the ’80s and ’90s era with “Alfie’s Song” (Not So Typical Love Song), the very first official jam from the original motion picture soundtrack for the upcoming feature film releasing March 16.

For the film’s first number, Antonoff makes use of a clever assemblage of instruments and beats, from playful guitar riffs, riotous hand claps, and clever trumpet blares in the manner of the artist’s other notable tracks like “I Miss Those Days” and “Goodbye.”

So if you like what you’ve heard so far you’ll be happy to know that Antonoff will also be curating the soundtrack for Love, Simon as well.

Antonoff promises more details about the forthcoming record are on the way, but confirmed on Twitter Tuesday (January 16) that Bleachers would have another tune on the soundtrack. In addition, Antonoff also name-dropped a number of pop’s biggest players who will also make appearances. Troye Sivan, Khalid, and Fifth Harmony‘s Normani Kordei are among the listed vocalists to be featured on the record which releases on the film’s release date.

Based on the best-selling novelist Becky Albertalli‘s 2015 novel Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens AgendaLove, Simon takes after the titular teenage character coming-of-age as a not-so-open gay teenager.

Still closeted yet hoping to make a connection with a special someone, Simon Spier (portrayed by Nick Robinson) turns to the internet, where he meets his pen pal who goes by Blue. But when a secret e-mail exchange gets into the hands of one of his enemies, Simon gets tangled up in a blackmail scheme that threatens to not only reveal his own sexuality but the identity of his secret love interest as well.

Along with Robinson, who plays the titular Simon, stars Katherine Langford, Alexandra Shipp, Jorge Lendeborg, Logan Miller, Jennifer Garner, Josh Duhamel, and Tony Hale will all appear in the Greg Berlanti-directed film.
