First Listen- Josh Groban Releases 'Dust and Ashes' from NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812!

Multiplatinum recording artist Josh Groban releases "Dust and Ashes" from the new musical NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812 for digital download today, and will be available at all digital retailers and streaming services (Apple Music and Spotify). The single is the first chance to preview Groban's Broadway debut in THE GREAT COMET this fall. "Dust and Ashes" features music and lyrics by Dave Malloy, and will be distributed by Reprise Records. Listen below!

THE GREAT COMET will open on Broadway this fall, starring Josh Groban as 'Pierre' and Denée Benton as 'Natasha' in their Broadway debuts. Created by Dave Malloy (Preludes, Ghost Quartet) and directed by Rachel Chavkin (Small Mouth Sounds, Preludes), THE GREAT COMET will blaze into Broadway's Imperial Theatre (249 West 45th Street) beginning October 18, with opening night set for Monday, November 14, 2016. Tickets are on sale now and available at

THE GREAT COMET is a theatrical experience like no other. Malloy's inspired adaptation of a 70-page slice of War and Peace puts audiences just inches away from Tolstoy's brash young lovers, as they light up Moscow in an epic tale of romance and passion.

Tickets for THE GREAT COMET are on sale now and available via or by visiting the Imperial Theater box office (249 West 45th Street). For groups of 15+, call 1-800-432-7780.

Groban has released seven studio albums, 2001's self-titled double-platinum debut, 2003's multi-platinum Closer, 2006's double-platinum Awake, 2007's quadruple-platinum Grammy-nominated Noel, 2010's platinum Illuminations, and 2013's All That Echoes, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, giving Groban his first No. 1 debut and third chart-topper. In April 2015, Groban released Stages a collection of some of the greatest songs from musical theater. The album was nominated for a 2016 Grammy Award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album. In February 2016 Groban released a CD/DVD package, entitled Stages Live, featuring performances recorded at the historic Los Angeles Theater in downtown L.A. for his all-new PBS special Josh Groban: Stages Live. An active arts education philanthropist and advocate, Groban is a member of Americans for the Arts Artists Committee and Groban's Find Your Light Foundation helps enrich the lives of young people through arts, education, and cultural awareness.
