Platt’s much anticipated second solo album “Reverie” includes such extraordinary new singles as “Happy To Be Sad” and “Imagine,” both available now on all digital platforms. Produced by Michael Pollack (Justin Bieber, Katy Perry) and Zach Skelton (Jonas Brothers, Paul McCartney) with additional production from Grammy award nominee Gian Stone (Maroon 5, Dua Lipa), “Happy To Be Sad” was met with applause from Billboard, which raved, “On ‘Happy To Be Sad,’ the singer beautifully illustrates the portrait of a lover having to leave his significant other for a while, and simply reveling in the sadness as a source of pure joy. It’s a confusing emotion to describe until you hear Platt’s cherubic vocals sing the words – then it feels like it’s happening to you right in this moment.” “Happy To Be Sad” is joined by an official companion visualizer, streaming HERE.
“Imagine” arrived earlier this summer and has fast proven one of Platt’s biggest singles to date. Produced by The Monsters & Strangerz and Jon Bellion – the superstar team behind such hits as Maroon 5’s “Memories,” Justin Bieber’s “Holy,” and “Prisoner” by Miley Cyrus Feat. Dua Lipa – and co-written by Platt with Bellion, Michael Pollack, Alexander Izquierdo, Jordan K. Johnson, and Stefan Johnson, the track now boasts over 20 million worldwide streams and counting. Hailed by Rolling Stone as “tender and confident… a tribute to everyday saviors,” “Imagine” reached No. 7 on iTunes’ “Top Pop Songs”, to the “30 Hot AC Hit” list, and the top 50 on Spotify’s “US Viral 50” while also lighting up Hot AC Radio outlets nationwide.
“Imagine” represented the first new music from Platt since 2019’s “So Will I.” Produced by multiple Grammy award-winner Finneas (Billie Eilish, Halsey, Camila Cabello) and applauded by Rolling Stone as “moving, inspiring…a powerful new ballad,” “So Will I” is featured on the deluxe edition of Platt’s acclaimed debut album, “Sing to Me Instead.” The expanded collection also includes live material recorded during Platt’s sold-out 2018 headline show at New York City’s legendary Radio City Music Hall, filmed for the concert special, “Ben Platt Live From Radio City Music Hall,” which streamed exclusively on Netflix.
“Sing to Me Instead” proved a full-fledged sensation upon its March 2019 release, amassing over 337 million global streams and earning applause from fans and critics alike. A truly multi-faceted actor, singer, and all-around performer, the album saw Platt making a remarkable arrival as a solo recording artist and a songwriter, co-writing all the album’s 12 songs. Highlights include “Bad Habit,” “Ease My Mind,” “Grow As We Go,” and “Temporary Love.”
The winner of the 2017 Tony Award for “Best Leading Actor in a Musical” for his performance as Evan Hansen in the smash hit, “Dear Evan Hansen,” Platt also received a Grammy for his role on Atlantic’s “Dear Evan Hansen (Original Broadway Cast Recording” and a 2018 Daytime Emmy for his part in the cast’s powerful performance of “You Will Be Found” on NBC’s “Today.” Platt will reprise his role as Evan in the Dear Evan Hansen film, set for release on Sept. 24.
Platt’s evolving body of work also includes memorable roles in the TONY® Award-winning original Broadway production of “The Book of Mormon,” the blockbuster films, “Pitch Perfect” and “Pitch Perfect 2,” and the acclaimed Netflix series, “The Politician” which earned him a Golden Globe nomination for “Best Actor in a Comedy,” among many others. Platt – who recently made a guest appearance on FOX’s “The Simpsons,” began filming “Merrily We Roll Along” with Beanie Feldstein, directed by Richard Linklater, which will be shot over the course of twenty years. Ben will soon be seen in BJ Novak’s anthology series, “The Premise” a new comedy-drama coming to FX and Hulu. He will soon begin production on the film, “The People We Hate At The Wedding” alongside Kristen Bell and Allison Janney.
