WATCH: Good Morning America debuts two new clips of "Gaston"

Luke Evans stopped by Good Morning America this morning to discuss Beauty and the Beast and his role as Gaston. The segment also featured two clips of Evans and Josh Gad (LeFou) performing "Gaston" in the film.

In the film, the song features previously unused Howard Ashman lyrics, which composer Alan Menken discussed with Entertainment Weekly last fall:
“In ‘Gaston,’ we had a treasure trove of lyrics that Howard had written that we did not put in the movie,” Alan Menken tells EW. “In many cases they were a little bit risqué — not risqué sexually, but risqué in terms of sensibility. We all felt ready to have these lyrics. When Bill found out about those lyrics, he said, ‘Oh my god, can we please look at that, because it would be a wonderful way to add an extra freshness to the movie.’ So, yes, you’re going to hear some unheard Howard Ashman lyrics.”
