Ben Platt’s new album is titled “Honeymind,” but given the ”Dear Evan Hansen” star’s upcoming nuptials to Noah Galvin, it could almost be called “Honeymoon.”

The two singer-actors, both 30 and based in Brooklyn, got engaged in November 2022 — and the groomzilla countdown has begun.

“The engagement is on!” Platt said in The Post’s exclusive video series, “Music to My Years,” outside of one of the couple’s favorite date spots, Joseph Leonard restaurant. The location just so happens to be across the street from the iconic LGBTQ institution Stonewall Inn in New York’s Greenwich Village.

“We’re getting married in the fall. So it’s  … pedal to the metal.”

“We’re getting married in Brooklyn in the fall with all my big Jewish family, and Noah’s family and our friends, and we’re gonna dance the night away,” said Ben Platt of his upcoming nuptials to fellow singer-actor Noah Galvin. Tamara Beckwith/N.Y.Post

But, he added with a wink, “It’s all planned. It’s all private. But we’re getting married in Brooklyn in the fall with all my big Jewish family, and Noah’s family and our friends, and we’re gonna dance the night away.”

Platt and Galvin met when “we were like 19, 20 years old doing a web series that never saw the light of day,” he said. “And we immediately had, like, an attraction to each other and started dating pretty quickly … hooking up for, like, three months.

“And then I panicked and took a step back, and I sent him a long text message, and I was like, ‘We should just be friends. We’re so young. And we don’t know what we want.’ Blah, blah, blah. Basically, I was just afraid. I didn’t know it at that time. But he really saw me — and I was scared.”

But after Galvin was “a little pissed for a minute,” the two remained friends and then rekindled their romance in 2019. “I sort of came to my senses,” said Platt.

“I don’t think I understood how close a loving friendship is to a partnership. I expected that they would feel like such a different experience, such a different feeling.

“But ultimately, I’m in love with him, and I’m attracted to him — and he’s also just my best friend. So thankfully I figured it out.”

And now Galvin — who was one of Platt’s surprise special guests last Friday during his 18-show residency at Broadway’s historic Palace Theatre — gets a heartfelt dedication with the “Honeymind” ballad “Before I Knew You,” which deserves to become a gay wedding-song staple.

“I wrote this song about sort of, you know … right in front of my nose was the love of my life,” he said on opening night May 28. “And it’s a wonderful thing to realize.”
