Later this month (Sept. 24), moviegoers will head into theaters to check out Dear Evan Hansen, a musical drama that’s based off of a play of the same name. The film stars Ben Platt, Kaitlyn Dever, and Amandla Stenberg, and is centered around a teen who finds himself thrown into a series of events as a result of a tragic suicide.
Accompanying Dear Evan Hansen will be an official soundtrack of the same name, which will see contributions from many of the cast — in addition, artists like Sam Smith, Carrie Underwood, Summer Walker, FINNEAS, and Tori Kelly will be makes appearances on the compilation. Today (Sept. 9), fans get to check out a new single from SZA titled “The Anonymous Ones,” a Carter Lang and Rob Bisel-produced effort that matches Dear Evan Hansen perfectly thanks to its emotionally charged subject matter:
“The anonymous onеs, never let you see the hate they carry, all those anonymous ones, never name the quiet pain they bury, keep on keeping secrets that they think they have to hide, what if everybody’s secret is they have that secret side? And to know, to know we’re not alone, is all we’re hoping for, I don’t wanna be anonymous, I ain’t gotta be anonymous, I don’t wanna be anonymous anymore…”
It’s been more than four years since SZA released her debut LP Ctrl, which saw 14 tracks and additional features from Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar, James Fauntleroy, and Isaiah Rashad. The project was a massive success for the St. Louis-to-New Jersey talent, charting across the globe and scoring SZA multiple Gold and Platinum plaques. Since then, she deliver some top tier loose singles like “Good Days” and “Hit Different” with Ty Dolla $ign — just last month, she liberated three songs on her Soundcloud account.
