Ben Platt Wants to Spread Some Joy With a ‘Euphoric' New Album and the ‘Dear Evan Hansen' Movie

Ben Platt has new music on the way, and he wants it to add notes of joy to these tough times. Platt, who said he wrote the songs from his childhood bedroom, is also preparing for the release of the movie adaptation of his Broadway hit "Dear Evan Hansen" this fall. He talked to NBCLX about both projects, plus a new health initiative with his sister-in-law to treat multiple sclerosis using music therapy.
