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.

Broadway's 'Dear Evan Hansen' to Become a Young Adult Novel

The smash hit Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen will soon become a young adult novel that you can read at home!

Val Emmich has written an adaptation of the Tony-winning show, which will be published this October by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.

The show’s writer Steven Levenson explained to The New York Times why the creative team behind the musical decided to turn it into a novel.

“We have felt a certain discomfort with the fact that it is so expensive to come see the show, we can only have 1,000 people a night, and there are so many people who can’t come to New York,” he said. “There were people responding to the show without having even seen it, and we did feel like, what are some ways that we can get this show to more people?”

There will also be parts of the book that you don’t get to experience in the show, including moments that are only alluded to on stage. Composers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul sent Emmich songs that weren’t used for the musical and Levenson provided scenes that were cut. The material was reworked to be used in the novel!
