So let’s make sure the newly-released music video for Steven’s standout “Call Me by Your Name” track “Mystery of Love” gets in front of every Oscar voter. Pitchfork debuted the clip, which features clips of Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer from the movie and footage taken at the Museo Archeologico Nazionale of Naples.
