Since announcing the release of his debut solo album, Ben Platt has been delighting fans by periodically releasing new songs. This week is no different as the musician shared the fourth track from his forthcoming studio effort, Sing to Me Instead.
On Friday (March 8), the singer unveiled the music video for his new song “Temporary Love.” The Nick Lieberman-directed music video begins with Platt seated in what first appears to be a room in an abandoned house.
Platt spends most of the video signing in the room, dancing in the house’s foyer, and even spends a moment outdoors in front of the home. Amid the shots of Platt are shots of several diverse couples showing affection towards their partner in the form of hugs, kisses, and even hand-holding.
Like Platt sings in the chorus: “this is not a temporary love.”
Watch the music video for “Temporary Love” and get ready for a feels trip.
“Temporary Love” joins previously released tracks “Grow As We Go,” “Ease My Mind,” and “Bad Habit” on Platt’s upcoming album. Sing to Me Instead is due out March 29 through Atlantic Records. Pre-orders for the album are currently available on the musician’s website.
Last month, the musician announced plans to embark on a short North American tour throughout May. The Sing to Me Instead tour begins on May 3 at the Chicago Theatre and concludes a few weeks later on May 24 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.
Wrabel and Ben Abraham will hit the road alongside Platt as his direct supporting acts.
According to a recent press release, Platt’s show at the Beacon Theater on May 14 in New York City is officially sold out. The show sold out during the pre-sale period in mid-February.
