Katy Perry Sings 'Waving Through a Window' from 'Dear Evan Hansen' - Listen Now!

Katy Perry has released her own version of the song “Waving Through a Window” from the Tony-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen!

The pop star recorded the song for the Deluxe Edition of the Broadway musical’s cast recording. She released a statement in which she talked about seeing the show for the first time last year and how she related to the song.

“On April 29, 2017, I went and saw Dear Evan Hansen on Broadway, and was 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,” Katy said. “That night, I was particularly struck by the song ‘Waving Through A Window.’ It embodied the mental isolation I sometimes fought.”

“So when my friends Benj Pasek and Justin Paul came to me and asked if I would like to record this song, not only to help launch the national tour, but to continue the conversation on mental health and all its complexities, I jumped right in. I hope this song helps you know that you are not alone, and that I’m waiving back at you,” Katy added.
