This Friday, March 16th, will see the digital release of Love, SimonOriginal Motion Picture Soundtrack, from Lakeshore Records, on the same day the new coming-of-age film opens wide in theaters. The movie is a heartfelt teen comedy in the vein of John Hughes, about a young man figuring out how he’ll come out to his family and friends, and trying discover the true identity of a person he’s fallen for over the Internet.

Rob Simonsen is the critically-acclaimed composer behind the scores for such films as Foxcatcher, The Way Way Back, and UTR favorite The Spectacular Now. (We last premiered pieces of Simonsen’s scores for NERVE and Gifted.) We’re excited to debut “Simon & Blue,” the lead track from Love, Simon’s OST, which starts the album off with an uplifting, ‘80s-tinted synth sound:

Love, Simon, which opens wide on Friday, stars Jurassic World’s Nick Robinson. Here’s the film’s synopsis:

Everyone deserves a great love story. But for seventeen-year old Simon Spier it’s a little more complicated: he’s yet to tell his family or friends he’s gay and he doesn’t actually know the identity of the anonymous classmate he’s fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing. Directed by Greg Berlanti (Riverdale, The Flash, Supergirl), written by Isaac Aptaker & Elizabeth Berger (This is Us), and based on Becky Albertalli’s acclaimed novel, LOVE, SIMON is a funny and heartfelt coming-of-age story about the thrilling ride of finding yourself and falling in love.

You can watch the trailer for Love, Simon below.
