Hear Bleachers Put a Ghostly Spin on Classic Show Tune ‘Almost Like Being in Love’

Bleachers take on the classic show tune “Almost Like Being in Love” for the final track in the Jack Antonoff-curated The New Look soundtrack.

The tenth and season finale episode of the Apple TV+ series — about the career of fashion designer Christian Dior and his clashes with Coco Chanel amid the backdrop of Nazi-occupied Paris — hit the streaming service Wednesday, and with it Antonoff and Bleachers’ ghostly rendition of the show tune that, after featuring in the  1947 musical Brigadoon, was popularized by artists like Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Shirley Bassey and Seventies soft rocker Michael Johnson.

Over the past 10 weeks, Antonoff and Apple TV+ have shared a selection from The New Look soundtrack, with contemporary singers providing their spin on mid-20th century songs from the Great American Songbook.

Previous tracks include Lana Del Rey’s rendition of Irving Berlin’s “Blue Skies,” the 1975’s version of the Bing Crosby-popularized “Now Is the Hour,” Florence and the Machine updating Vera Lynn’s “White Cliffs of Dover,” Bartees Strange covering “You Always Hurt the Ones You Love,” and more.

Beabadoobee, Nick Cave, Perfume Genius, Joy Oladokun, and Sam Dew also contributed to the soundtrack, which marks Antonoff’s first release via his own Shadow of the City imprint on Dirty Hit. 

“Almost Like Being in Love” arrives less than a month after the Antonoff-fronted Bleachers released their new self-titled album.
