Dear Evan Hansen just revealed the track list on the upcoming movie-musical’s soundtrack.
Sam Smith, Summer Walker, SZA, FINNEAS, Tori Kelly, Carrie Underwood and Dan + Shay will deliver renditions of “reimagined” songs from the award-winning production. The film will also include a few original tracks: “The Anonymous Ones” and “A Little Closer.” Hours before the soundtrack announcement, Dan + Shay seemed to drop strong hints of an upcoming collaboration with Carrie Underwood. Though fans had “no idea” what was happening, they eagerly commented that they’re “here for it.” Underwood teamed up with the country duo on “Only Us,” Dear Evan Hansen announced Tuesday. Fans can pre-order the soundtrack now, and listen on September 24.
