Dan +Shay are officially joining Carrie Underwood for a song on the Dear Evan Hansen movie soundtrack. Both acts teased their fans with clips of "Only Us" on their social media.
The film adaptation of the Tony award-winning Broadway musical is set to be released on Sept. 24. After its premiere in 2015, the musical was highly praised after winning Best Score at the 71st Tony Awards in 2017. "Only Us" is performed during the second act by Evan Hansen and Sally Murphy, who are played by Ben Platt and Katlyn Dever in the film adaptation.
Dan + Shay first teased the collaboration on Instagram on Aug. 30 when they posted a photo of them with Underwood. That spiked the interest of fans, especially after they added a studio video of musicians without any context. The day after, Underwood shared more details.
The country music singer wrote, "I'm so excited to share that I teamed up with @danandshay to record a very special song for the #DearEvanHansenMovie Original Motion Picture Soundtrack! "'Only Us' is coming your way this Friday!"
The Dear Evan Hansen soundtrack includes songs by Finneas, SZA, Sam Smith and Tori Kelly and will officially be available when the movie is released next month.
