Reverie was released in August 2021 and preceded by the singles “Imagine” and “Happy to Be Sad.” Featuring co-writing credits from hitmakers like Julia Michael and Ben Abraham, the 13-track set marked Platt’s second studio album following 2019’s Sing to Me Instead.

Following the release of Reverie, the actor and musician originally announced the Reverie Tour for spring 2022 featuring opening act Jake Wesley Rogers before postponing the dates for unknown reasons. The tour now features Aly & AJ, who released the critically acclaimed album a touch of the beat gets you up on your feet gets you out and then into the sun last year and are known for their 2007 hit “Potential Breakup Song,” which recently went viral thanks to their re-recorded explicit version.

“Aly and AJ are extremely talented musicians and icons and I’ve been their fan for most of my life,” continued Platt’s press statement, “so I’m over the moon that they’re coming on the road with me!”
