Ben Platt shares the creative process behind his new album ‘HONEYMIND,’ how he’s inspired by Taylor Swift and Beyoncé’s performances, how his career and personal transitions influenced the album and more!

Ben Platt:

I started writing the album in the spring of 2022 in Nashville and sort of wrote this first series of songs that kind of became the kind of like nest egg of the whole thing. And at that stage, I was very much in a kind of point of transition personally and career-wise, where I was reinvestigating kind of my reasons for being an artist. 

Tetris Kelly:

Ben Platt has conquered Broadway, TV and film with his character work. With his third album, ‘HONEYMIND,’ out Friday, he’s showing more of himself than ever.

Ben Platt:

On top of that it was also settling into my, now you know, well, soon-to-be marriage with my partner Noah, and so the album started to take shape as this kind of crossroads between what it feels like to arrive in your kind of real relationship and to have a partner that you feel like really understands you holistically. And then also how do you as a person need to continue to work to understand and care for yourself to really be ready for a relationship like that?

Tetris Kelly:

His relationship with fiancée Noah Galvin, take center stage in Ben’s music video for “Cherry on Top,”

Rebecca Milzoff:

It was like a home movie. How did you to go through that day or days it took to do that?

Ben Platt:

I love to keep some things sacred and private.

Keep watching to learn more!
