Ben Platt Drops ‘Music From The Netflix Original Series The Politician’ EP
Ben Platt is nothing if not prolific. In the space of a year, he has released his debut album (the winning Sing To Me Instead), conquered dance-pop on stand-alone single “Rain,” starred in The Politician and dropped an EP of songs from said Netflix series. The four-track set, which arrives today (October 22), includes covers of Joni Mitchell’s “River” and Billy Joel’s “Vienna” as well as a duet version of Stephen Sondheim’s “Unworthy Of Your Love.” Performed with co-star Zoey Deutch, no less.
The EP is rounded out with Ben’s own “Run Away,” one of the many great songs on Sing To Me Instead. It’s hard to pick a highlight, but the 26-year-old’s affinity for Broadway really comes through on his interpretation of “Unworthy Of Your Love.” In fact, the Dear Evan Hansen star might want to consider releasing an entire Sondheim-themed album at some point. (I would love to hear his take on “Not A Day Goes By” and “No One Is Alone”). Stream Music From The Netflix Original Series The Politician below.
