Josh Groban Covers Simon & Garfunkel and Billy Joel On Bridges

Josh Groban has covered the music and Simon & Garfunkel and Billy for his eighth album ‘Bridges’.

For ‘Bridges’, Groban has also placed some of his own songs alongside the standards. “I wanted to find a balance,” Groban says of the new record. “That’s one of the reasons behind the title. I’ve always enjoyed singing about light and dark and love and loss as well as friendship. I really emphasized choosing the songs and the order to serve a continuity of energy. The album is about learning lessons, appreciating when love comes your way, being Zen about it when love leaves, and keeping a more energetic and positive spirit moving forward. Music has that way of uniting people unlike anything else in the world. This time, I felt more comfortable writing. I’m really conveying my message and story.”

The album features a star-studded cast with guest appearances from Sarah McLachlan, Andrea Bocelli and Jennifer Nettles.

‘Bridges’ was recorded in Los Angeles, London and New York with multiple producers including Bernie Herms and Toby Gad, Steve Jordan, Dan Huff, and others.
