Ben Platt and GRAMMY® Award-winning, platinum-certified, international icon Tiësto have joined forces for the new “Imagine (Tiësto Remix).” A mesmerizing rework of Platt’s acclaimed new single, “Imagine (Tiësto Remix)” premieres today via Atlantic Records at all digital platforms HERE; an official visualizer can be viewed at YouTube HERE.
Released last month, Platt’s original version of “Imagine” has over 5 million global streams and just debuted on the Hot AC Radio chart – available now at all DSPs and streaming services HERE; an official music video is streaming now at YouTube HERE. Produced by The Monsters & Strangerz and Jon Bellion – the superstar team behind such hits as Maroon 5’s “Memories,” Justin Bieber’s “Holy,” and “Prisoner” by Miley Cyrus Feat. Dua Lipa – and co-written by Platt with Bellion, Michael Pollack, Alexander Izquierdo, Jordan K. Johnson, and Stefan Johnson, “Imagine” was met by international applause from the likes of Rolling Stone, which raved, “The mid-tempo pop track, which is both tender and confident, serves as a tribute to everyday saviors — the people who lift others up in times of darkness,” adding, “Its just-released music video – directed by Matty Peacock (Billie Eilish, Shawn Mendes, Selena Gomez) – is quite literally uplifting.” “Platt’s stunning way with words comes across in every single lyric of this song,” wrote EUPHORIA, while the UK’s NME declared “Imagine” to be “a powerful electro-pop ballad,” noting, “You don’t put out a song with the same title as a John Lennon classic unless you’re sure you’ve nailed the assignment.”
Platt is celebrating with a series of high profile TV appearances, including a performance of “Imagine” earlier this week on the live season finale of NBC’s The Voice (streaming HERE). Next, Platt will visit the nationally syndicated Kelly Clarkson Show for an exclusive interview and performance of “Imagine,” airing Tuesday, June 8th (check local listings). In addition, Platt recently stopped by CBS’s The Late Late Show with James Corden for an interview (streaming HERE) and performance of “Imagine” (streaming HERE).
