Josh Groban released a brand new single and lyric video yesterday called “Symphony,” from his upcoming album Bridges. The Grammy and Tony Award-nominated singer and actor sings about missing his love, who is a thousand miles away in the heartfelt ballad and wistfully wonders if she’s still his.
“Symphony” is fiercely romantic and the lyrics in the sweeping chorus emphasize how much Groban cares:
“You deserve a symphony/Soaring strings and tympani/But all I have’s this melody/Written from my heart.” Later, he hits a sparkling falsetto as he implores, “If I could send you all the love I have inside/It’s in every note I sing/It’s in every word I write.”
Bridges is the highly-anticipated follow up to Groban’s chart-topping, Grammy-nominated album Stages, which was his first Broadway-themed album and pre-empted his Tony-nominated debut Broadway role in “Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812.” The “You Are Loved (Don’t Give Up)” singer talked about the upcoming Bridges Tour featuring special guest Idina Menzel during a recent visit to “Live with Kelly and Ryan.” He confirmed he’ll be singing old and new songs on the tour, which will undoubtedly include tracks from his new album.
