NEW MUSIC: BEN PLATT | HAPPY TO BE SAD

Multiple Award winner Ben Platt shared his new single, "Happy To Be Sad," today via Atlantic Records. 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" heralds the arrival of Platt's much anticipated second album, "REVERIE," due to drop on Friday, August 13th. "I wrote this song the day after my boyfriend left me for a 5-month stretch," Platt says. "It was the first time we had to be apart long term because of the pandemic. It came incredibly naturally and was an immediate expression of the mixed emotions I was feeling that day- the sadness to be away from him against the joy and celebration of finding someone I love enough to make me feel that way." Today's premiere of "Happy To Be Sad" follows the recent release of Platt's summer hit single, "Imagine," produced by The Monsters & Strangerz and Jon Bellion
