Look, it’s not every day one of the world’s most iconic and legendary singers releases an album, but this week, that’s just what Josh Groban did.
This album exceeded all of our wildest expectations. From the music and lyrics to Josh’s knockout vocals, it’s one of those albums that will shine bright for years to come and that people are going to remember.
The album consists of 12 heavenly tracks, and while it’s hard to choose a favorite, some of our favorite songs include ‘Angels,’ ‘She,’ ‘It’s Now Or Never,’ ‘Shape Of My Heart,’ ‘Both Sides Now,’ and ‘The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face.’ Josh Groban is an expert at emotion and making you feel his passion when he sings. Each song has its unique sound, dynamic, and powerful feeling that gave us goosebumps.
Josh Groban On The Album Harmony
“‘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. 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. ‘Harmony’ also has two original songs that I was not expecting to write. These songs were written and mostly recorded in the corner of my bedroom during lockdown and while they may not fit a style continuity of the project I originally had in mind, they fit what has been in my heart this very moment and are bursting with my hope for the future. It is with such immense gratitude that I get to release ‘Harmony’ to you now. I hope that every ounce of the love and healing I experienced recording it finds its way to you too.”
There are several out-of-this-world duets on the album as well (two of which are in our list of favorite songs) that feature some superstar artists, including Sara Bareilles, Kirk Franklin, and Leslie Odom Jr. Talk about blowing our minds! These duets are everything we never knew we needed!
