Iconis said, “The original cast recording of Be More Chill changed my life. It was the launchpad for this entire crazy journeywhich has led myself and my collaborators all the way to Broadway. I couldn’t be more excited that the new material written for the show since our 2015 recording will finally be preserved, along with the performances of our brilliant current cast. I am so proud that a second cast recording will soon be able to sit beside our first beloved album in the CD carrying cases, LP shelves, and hard drives of Be More Chill fans everywhere.”
