With the release of Love You to Death just over a month away, pop duo Tegan and Sara have premiered a video for the LP’s lead single “Boyfriend” via Pitchfork. The clip features a star-studded cast of Rachel Antonoff, Sarah Ramos and Mae Whitman alongside the Canadian twins.

“Boyfriend” pokes a bit of fun at the music video process, showing Tegan and Sara in the hectic environment of a set surrounded by a frustrated director, disappointing extras and lots of confetti, balloons and green-screens. Its lightheartedness balances the song’s somewhat serious lyrics, though, which Sara talked about with Beats1 earlier this month:

It’s a pretty straightforward pop song about a relationship that I was getting into with a girl who had never dated a girl before. She had a guy that she was sort of seeing, and we used to joke around that she was treating me like her boyfriend, and I was trying to get her to tie it down. I wanted her to make it official with me. And I think that’s pretty relatable: obviously, being gay, the sort of gender twist in the song. I get that that sometimes doesn’t seem immediately relatable to everybody, whether they’re straight or whatever. But [it’s] this idea that we’ve all been in that situation where we really like someone and we want to make it official, and they’re not ready.

Tegan and Sara bring Love You to Death to The Fillmore on November 3rd; tickets and information can be found here. Watch “Boyfriend” below.
