    Josh Groban will break new ground of artistic and personal growth with his long-awaited fifth studio album, Illuminations, to be released on November 15 via Reprise Records. The album is the rewardingly surprise-filled result of the unexpected but stimulating teaming with veteran producer Rick Rubin, known for his iconic work with Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash, Slayer, Slipknot and Dixie Chicks among many others.

    This unprecedented partnership saw both Groban and Rubin stepping out of their respective zones to come together and create an entirely new zone where art meets intimacy and immediacy meets timelessness.

    "These are my stories," said Groban, who co-wrote eleven of the thirteen songs on the album. "For every one of these songs, someone's going to know it's about them. I'm going to get a text message about every one! This is a very personal record."

    Elsewhere Groban makes his first foray into singing Portuguese on the vibrant "Voce Existe Em Mim (You Exist In Me),"returns to the more familiar Italian language with "L'Ora Dell'Addio"(a lush collaboration with the great composer/arranger Walter Afanasieff and lyricist Marco Marinagneli), paints a loving portrait of the Big Apple with "The Bells of New York City,"with and offers his own, highly personal take on Nick Cave's poetic and passionate "Straight to You."

    "Josh is a one-of-a-kind artist and he works in a genre I have never worked in before," said Rubin. "So there was a great excitement discovering our ‘way in' to get to his essence and make a fine art album unlike any he has made before."

    The track listing for Illuminations is below.
