Katy has announced that she will be releasing a cover of the song "Waving Through a Window" from the Broadway musical 'Dear Evan Hansen':

"On April 29, 2017, I went and saw Dear Evan Hansen on Broadway, and was emotionally transformed forever. In my own life, Iíve 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 ďWaving Through A Window.Ē 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 Iím waving back at you.

Tune in tonight for a listening party at 9p PT at youtube.com/DearEvanHansenMusical"

Released tomorrow at 5am BST - there's a clip on her Instagram.

It sounds great from that clip and obviously her reasoning behind wanting to cover this song is deep. This technique has obviously worked for Pink just last week so hopefully Katy can have the same effect!

I donít expect itll do much. Dear Evan Hanson is on no league similar to TGS in terms of success.

I've spent so long trying to work out what "baking pies" could be a euphemism for.

Doing a Furtado, in other words

This is an absolute BOP. It absolutely goes OFF just before the key change and on.

Can ah get a keeey chaaange!

Better than ANYTHING on Prism, except maaaybe Chained to the Rhythm. I have been bopping to this since it came oot on me headphones!!

She should have come back with this, or at least had it as second single. It is the type of sound, Perfect Illusion style, she should have gone for.

Does anyone else feel though like this is her Goodbye song like the Spice Girls? Look at the lyrics - about stepping out the sun and finding who you are ohmy.gif Other lyrics are aboot her waving out a window, ignored, probably as she is baking some sort of pie!
