Katy Perry has yet to hit the Broadway stage, but she’s lending her voice to the new expanded edition of the Dear Evan Hansen soundtrack.
The deluxe album will include her rendition of the Tony-winning musical’s signature song, “Waving Through a Window.”
In an Instagram post, Katy recalls seeing the musical for the first time last year and being “emotionally transformed forever.”
“In my own life, I’ve struggled with depression, and like so many, always feeling alone in the battle of wanting to belong,” she says. “That night, I was particularly struck by the song ‘Waving Through a Window.’ It embodied the mental isolation I sometimes fought.”
Katy adds that when she was approached to record the song, she jumped at the chance. “I hope this song helps you know that you are not alone, and that I’m waving back at you,” she says.
Dear Evan Hansen (Original Broadway Cast Recording) — Deluxe Album comes out Friday, November 2.
