Multi awarded Artist Ben Platt Gives Us a Little taste of Upcoming Album “Reverie” with new single “Happy To Be Sad”
After his latest release “Imagine” ben is back with a new single “Happy To Be Sad “.

Ben shares: “I wrote this song the day after my boyfriend left me for a 5-month stretch. 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.”
In addition, Platt is slated for an eagerly awaited performance on NBC’s TODAY as part of their 2021 Citi Music Series, set for Friday, August 13th (check local listings). Additional TV appearances will be announced soon.
