Groban’s first single off Illuminations, titled, “Hidden Away” was released yesterday and can be purchased online.

Groban worked with veteran producer Rick Rubin on his new album. Rubin is known for his acclaimed work with Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash, and Dixie Chicks among many others. Groban co-wrote most of the songs on Illuminations, including “Hidden Away,” a track about not hiding true love or one’s true self. The song was recorded live with Groban playing the piano and singing, while an orchestral arrangement by David Campbell was added after.

Groban reportedly has a different sound in Illuminations, which Rubin calls a “fine art” album. The record combines Groban’s writing (which has American roots), with classical arrangements. The album took three years to make, while Groban was busy with other projects.

Since his last studio albums, Awake and his Christmas album, Noel, we saw Groban perform TV theme songs at the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards, and sing at the Obama Inaugural Celebration. Groban tried his luck at acting when he guest starred twive on Fox’s Glee. Fans will also catch Groban in Crazy Stupid Love, a comedy starring Steve Carell and Julianne Moore, due out in spring 2011.

Keep an eye out for the official release date of Illuminations!

    A committed soap opera freak--err, fan, Rolla Bahsous was thrilled to begin her professional writing career writing about everything soaps. But her love for television did not stop at daytime! Rolla is excited to be using her guilty pleasure, following celebrity gossip, at Rolla's had a few encounters with her favorite celebs, including a fingertip brush and a "Take care, sweetheart" from Michael Buble, as well as a flying kiss from Nick Carter - in both incidents Rolla forgot how to breathe. Rolla's University of Toronto degree in communications, political science, and theater is evidence of her diverse interests. When she is not writing, Rolla enjoys her obsession with fairies, coffee shops, and working out, (while watching television, of course!).
