GRAMMY®, TONY®, and Emmy® Award-winning artist Ben Platt is proud to announce today’s release of his eagerly awaited new album. REVERIE is available now via Atlantic Records HERE. Last night Platt performed a very special YouTube live stream performance from Los Angeles which can be streamed HERE.
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 20M worldwide streams and counting. Hailed by Rolling Stone as “tender and confident… a tribute to everyday saviors,” “Imagine” reached #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. An official music video, directed by Matty Peacock (Billie Eilish, Shawn Mendes, Selena Gomez), is streaming now via YouTube HERE.
“Imagine” represented the first new music from Platt since 2019’s “So Will I, available HERE. 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.
