Ben Platt has dropped his new song “So Will I,” which was produced by fellow Grammy winner Finneas.
The song will be featured on the deluxe edition of Ben‘s album Sing to Me Instead, which is being released on May 20. The young singer’s concert special for Netflix is being released on the same day.
“I wrote this song at the start of quarantine. I had the idea for it while I was isolated and knew I wanted to write something that could speak to the moment and bring some comfort, but also a song that could have a life far beyond this time,” Ben said in a statement (via Rolling Stone).
He added, “When we finished and saw we had something very special, I brought it immediately to Finneas and asked if he might be willing to produce. I knew that not only would he have the musical fortitude to play all the instruments and produce the entire track on his own in isolation, but also that his emotional intelligence would be a perfect match for the song. He elevated it and lifted it without overpowering the lyric and the storytelling. He’s magic.”
You can download the song now on iTunes or stream it below via YouTube.
