GRAMMY®, TONY®, and Emmy® Award-winning artist Ben Platt has announced today’s release of a remarkable new single. “RAIN” is available now at all DSPs and streaming services – listen here.

Produced by Alex Hope (Troye Sivan, Tove Lo, Jack Antonoff), “RAIN” marks Platt’s first new music since the arrival of his acclaimed debut, Sing to Me Instead, released earlier this year on Atlantic Records.

Platt will kick off a very busy fall season with a headline performance of “RAIN” and Sing to Me Instead’s “Temporary Love” at next week’s US Open Opening Night Ceremony, to be broadcast live from Queens, NY’s Arthur Ashe Stadium on Monday, August 26th at 7:20 pm ET via ABC and ESPN.

Next month will see Platt join an array of superstars – including Queen + Adam Lambert, Pharrell Williams, Alicia Keys, OneRepublic, H.E.R., and Carole King – for the annual Global Citizen Festival 2019, set for Saturday, September 28th at the Great Lawn in New York City’s Central Park. Complete details and free ticket information can be found HERE.

Last but certainly not least, Platt will mark a career milestone with a sold-out headline show at New York City’s legendary Radio City Music Hall, set for Sunday, September 29th. Platt first announced the show earlier this spring during a sold-out show at NYC’s equally renowned Beacon Theatre.

Platt will also be seen next month leading an all-star cast in the much-anticipated new series, The Politician, produced by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan (Glee) and co-starring Jessica Lange, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Zoey Deutch. Co-executive produced by Platt – who recently appeared alongside his co-stars in an exclusive cover feature in The Hollywood Reporter – The Politician premieres Friday, September 27th on Netflix.
