NEW MUSIC: CARRIE UNDERWOOD & DAN + SHAY | ONLY US (FROM DEAR EVAN HANSEN)
Fresh from the release of her Jason Aldean duet “If I Didn’t Love You,” Carrie Underwood has teamed up with chart-topping tandem Dan + Shay for a new track, “Only Us” from the soundtrack of Broadway musical-turned-film "Dear Evan Hansen." The movie "Dear Evan Hansen" is a film adaptation of the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical. After premiering in 2015, the music was specifically hailed, winning Best Score at the 71st Tony Awards (2017). "Only Us" can be found in Act 2 and is performed by Evan Hansen and Zoe Murphy, played by Ben Platt and Katlyn Dever in the film adaptation. "Only Us" was officially announced via Underwood’s Instagram. The “Until He Cheats” performer posted, “I’m so excited to share that I teamed up with @danandshay to record a very special song for the #DearEvanHansenMovie Original Motion. Picture Soundtrack! ’Only Us’ is coming your way this Friday!” As well, Dan + Shay teased the announcement on August 30, when they posted a shot of them with Underwood, captioned with an eyeball emoji, plus an in-studio clip of the “Only Us” recording session. The full soundtrack also includes songs by Tori Kelly, Finneas and Sam Smith. The "Dear Evan Hansen" movie soundtrack will be available when the movie debuts nationwide on September 24.
