Just two years after the release of his fifth studio album Illuminations, Josh Groban has announced today (November 19) that he will be releasing his sixth studio album titled All That Echoes on February 5, 2013 according to a press release from his label Reprise/WMG. The album was produced by Warner Bros. Records chairman Rob Cavallo and includes additional heavy hitting by Lester Mendez (Shakira, Nelly Furtado) and Walter Afanasiseff (Mariah Carey).
All That Echoes is going into preorder mode almost immediately, tomorrow (November 20) on Amazon and on November 27 on iTunes. Groban will also have a so-called “direct-to-fan” version that contains bonus material as an exclusive on his official website.
"From beginning to end, this project has blossomed with absolute joy and inspiration," Groban says in the press release. "Together with Rob Cavallo and all the incredible collaborators, we set out to create songs that could bridge the old and the new, the light and the dark of life and love … all that echoes in our souls. This album makes me feel good, and I hope others feel the same way."
"Josh is a consummate musician," Cavallo says in the press release. "He is a true talent, an unbelievable singer, and a friend who has totally inspired me. We both took risks we wouldn’t have taken without one another, and, as a result, the music flies higher than I ever thought possible. I love this album and am extremely proud of it. It’s a sonic adventure that reaches deep into the soul and I can’t wait to share it with the world."
