Craft Recordings and Concord Theatricals are proud to announce the digital release of the R&H Goes Pop! album. Featuring contemporary takes on timeless Rodgers & Hammerstein classics, the full album can be streamed and downloaded here.

To celebrate, a new music video featuring Andy Mientus (CW’s “The Flash,” NBC’s “Smash”) performing a new take on “Some Enchanted Evening” was released today. The video, shot in 2019, was directed by two-time Tony Award® nominee Michael Arden, and also features Dyllón Burnside (FX’s “Pose”), John Cameron Mitchell, and Michael McElroy.

Watch the music video on the Rodgers & Hammerstein YouTube channel here.

“I was absolutely gobsmacked when the R&H team agreed to let me tackle ‘Some Enchanted Evening,’ one of my favorites from the catalog and an undeniably immortal hit,” said Mientus. “I wanted to make a version that felt as romantic for a new generation as the original must have felt in 1949. To me, romance is a crowded after-hours party and the kind of moody, sensual pop you might hear there. I asked my frequent collaborator, Van Hughes, to help bring my sonic idea to life. I hope that we’ll be able to have crowded rooms again soon and that someone might meet their stranger there with this legendary song as the soundtrack.”

R&H Goes Pop! features the brightest Broadway stars performing and honoring the Rodgers & Hammerstein catalog with unique and inventive takes, ranging from pop and rock to R&B and country. The 15-track album features reinterpreted takes on iconic songs from Rodgers & Hammerstein’s hit Broadway musicals.
