Surprise! Katy Perry Recorded A Cover Of “Waving Through A Window”: ListenNovember 1, 2018
Katy Perry blessed us with a cover of “Waving Through A Window” from the Dear Evan Hansen soundtrack.
It’s been a minute since we’ve heard new music from Katy Perry (she actually mentioned taking a step back from music), but that’s changed!
The pop star felt inspired to record her version of “Waving Through A Window” after seeing Dear Evan Hansen on Broadway.
“Emotionally transformed forever,” she said of her experience.

“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.
She continued: “That night, I was particularly struck by the song ‘Waving Through A Window.’ It embodied the mental isolation I sometimes fought.” Katy adds she hopes the song sheds light on the “conversation on mental health and all its complexities.”
Katy gave Kats a preview of her version – the full thing drops on Friday (check back).

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. 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 @benjpasek and @justinpaulmusic came to me and asked if I would like to re-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 waving back at you. Tune in tonight for a listening party at 9p PT at youtube.com/DearEvanHansenMusical #DearEvanHansen #WavingThroughAWindow
