FINNEAS will be found on the upcoming Dear Evan Hansen soundtrack.

The “Let’s Fall in Love for the Night” artist is contributing a new version of the song “A Little Closer,” one of two original numbers written exclusively for the film, which is based on the hit Broadway musical.

The songs for both the Dear Evan Hansen musical and movie were written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the Oscar-winning duo behind the music for La La Land and The Greatest Showman.

Dear Evan Hansen hits theaters September 24. Its soundtrack will be released that same day.

FINNEAS, meanwhile, will release his debut album Optimist on October 15. It includes the previously released singles “What They’ll Say About Us” and “A Concert Six Months from Now.”
