Today, multi-platinum award-winning singer/songwriter and global superstar Josh Groban released his 8th studio album entitled, Bridges, via Reprise Records. The album is also available as a Deluxe, which includes two bonus tracks.
“With Bridges I wanted to create an album that took me back to the spirit of how I made my first ones but with a modern approach and with so many more years of stories to tell,” says Groban. “I felt so good and so inspired making this album, more than ever before, with friends old and new taking part. It both ‘bridges’ my musical worlds old and new, and also hopefully plays a small part in connecting people in that unique way music can.”
This is Groban’s first album that includes original music since 2013. Recorded in Los Angeles, London and New York with multiple producers including Bernie Herms and Toby Gad, Steve Jordan, Dan Huff, and others. This album also finds Josh singing in multiple different languages that include English, French, Italian and Spanish. The album also features a couple of exciting duets.
Earlier this year, Groban co-hosted the the 72nd Annual Tony® Awards alongside Sara Bareilles at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. The broadcast this year drew 6.3 million viewers on CBS, an increase of 4 percent from the 6 million who watched last year. The pair were praised for their hosting abilities: “Bareilles and Groban aced their duties on their own terms, displaying terrific chemistry and making it less about themselves than their infectious enthusiasm as out-and-proud theater geeks” (The Hollywood Reporter), “From a song about “the people who lose” to another about the life of a Broadway star, the pair rocked it” (The Huffington Post), “It’s safe to say that the evening’s host and Broadway-loving BFFs Sara Bareilles and Josh Groban made Broadway magic as emcees” (Broadway.com).
Groban can also be seen starring opposite Tony Danza in the new Netflix original series, The Good Cop. The show is now available for streaming and the trailer can be found HERE
