We won’t blame you if you pull a Phil Connors and put this song on repeat.

As the Broadway production of Groundhog Day gets closer to both its opening night and the debut of its cast recording, EW is excited to exclusively debut a first listen to one of the musical’s most touching tunes.

“Seeing You” features Phil (Tony nominee Andy Karl); his producer and eventual love interest, Rita (Barrett Doss); and the rest of the show’s company. The ballad comes at the end of Act 2, after the arrogant weatherman has found himself repeating Feb. 2 countless times, and it’s begun to have an effect on him — plus how he sees the town of Punxsutawney and, of course, Rita.

Based on the famed 1993 Bill Murray movie of the same name, Groundhog Day features music by Tim Minchin (Matilda the Musical) and a book by Danny Rubin, who co-wrote the film’s original screenplay.

The musical’s cast album is available for preorder now on Amazon and iTunes, and will be released digitally on April 21 before hitting stores on May 5. Take a listen to “Seeing You” below.

Groundhog Day is in previews now and officially opens April 17.
