Global superstar Josh Groban has released his brand new album, "Harmony," today via Reprise Records. Harmony is available now HERE.
With "Harmony," Groban performs a collection of timeless songs along with two originals, showcasing the artist’s unparalleled vocal prowess. The record includes timeless classics such as “The Impossible Dream,” “Angels,” “I Can't Make You Love Me,” “Celebrate Me Home,” “She” and many more. The album was mostly produced by Bernie Herms with additional songs produced by Steve Jordan, Tommee Profitt, and Federico Vindver.
Harmony also features guest performances from Tony Award winner Leslie Odom Jr (Hamilton), performing with Groban on the song “Shape Of My Heart”; and a performance from Grammy Award winner Sara Bareilles, performing with Groban on the classic Joni Mitchell song, ”Both Sides Now.” Grammy Award winner Kirk Franklin brings his unique blend of energy, gospel, and choir to a brand new original song, ”The Fullest.”
“Harmony was recorded in two parts. Before the pandemic we recorded about five songs, with the full intention of making this an album of classics that I love and have always wanted to sing. Beautiful in its simplicity of scope. We were recording and finding songs between concerts and fully expected to continue doing that for the next couple of months,” Groban said. “Then, sound was replaced with solitude. To have nothing but space, and to be sharing in a collective global tragedy, changed everything. Suddenly I was not steering the ship confidently on course. The waves had to take me to, hopefully, some sunlight. The result is an album that began to take a new shape.”
“When I was finally able to really sing again, to interpret, to immerse myself in these timeless melodies and stories, it became my saving grace and not just a pleasure. Musicians and producers from all over the country and the world blended together from their respective studios and homes. The title of the album represents the seemingly miraculous full picture of those efforts becoming clear,” Groban continued.
