Josh Groban is getting his musical theater on with his next album!
The siren-like singer will release a new album, entitled Stages, on April 28, 2015, via Reprise Records. The album is a collection of some of the greatest musical theater songs of all time, which Groban describes as "gorgeously arranged songs that have stood the test of time," and which he was drawn to because of their combination of "incredible melody with an incredible story."
Yes and yes!
"Nothing has inspired me more in my life than the energy that is shared in a theater when great songs and great art are on the stage," he says. "I wanted this album to pay tribute to those inspirations and memories."
There is NO way this can't be fucking awesome! It's Groban x musical theater.
Slayage will be in effect!
