GRAMMY®, TONY®, AND EMMY® AWARD-WINNER BEN PLATT
RELEASES HIS HIGHLY ANTICIPATED DEBUT ALBUM SING TO ME INSTEAD
Sing To Me Instead has already proved a full-fledged sensation, with tracks released thus far earning more than 16 million global audio and video streams in the weeks leading up to the LP release. Highlights includeBad Habit, Easy My Mind, Grow As We Go and Temporary Love, all of which are joined by official companion videos streaming now at Platt’s official YouTube channel HERE.
Platt celebrated the arrival of the album with a stellar pair of performances on NBC’s TODAY, including renditions of the LP’s Older and Grow As We Go. Next week will see the acclaimed star performing Older on CBS’s The Late Late Show with James Corden, set for Wednesday, April 3rd. Platt has already heralded Sing To Me Inetead with a number of high profile TV appearances, including Bad Habit on CBS’ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Temporary Love on the nationally syndicated Ellen DeGeneres Show.
In addition to an incredible response from fans, the tracks have been greeted by critical acclaim, with the Los Angeles Times declaring, “‘Bad Habit’ and ‘Ease My Mind’ showcase (Platt’s) signature vibrato and guttural vulnerability. The piano-driven ballads begin a story of love and loss that’s told on his debut solo album.”
Ben Platt is one of today’s most extraordinary talents – a truly multi-faceted actor, singer, and all-around performer. Sing To Me Instead sees him making a remarkable arrival as recording artist and songwriter, co-writing all of the album’s 12 songs. Described by its creator as “an amalgam of a bunch of different relationships in my past, and the very small amount that I’ve learned while grappling with love and romance,” the LP is marked by a striking, deeply emotive brand of classic popcraft, enlivened with sweeping vocals and Platt’s undeniable charm and versatility.
