Josh Groban

Josh Groban’s “You Raise Me Up” was a huge hit. It embodied the strong gospel style that he soon became known for. Now, Groban is striving to break that picture perfect image. In his new album, “Illuminations”, Groban struggles to be “human” rather than “perfect.” With the help of Rick Rubin, known for his work with the Beastie Boys, Johnny Cash, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Groban was able to add a new element to his songs.

Of course, Groban still sings about love, but rather than singing about all the great parts of love, he sings about the difficult parts of relationships. His strong deep voice is challenged with higher notes in many of his songs–adding a new level of passion to the lyrics. His new album also includes songs that are sung in French and Portuguese, something that not many artists are able to accomplish. Because Groban’s new album has little to no digital influence, his lyrics and melodies are raw with humanistic emotions.

His new album is available on November 15 and available for pre-order now. Check out the video below to see if it’s a purchase worth making. Chances are, it is!
