Nothing can stop BroadwayWorld's Richard Ridge from bringing you interviews with your favorite Broadway stars! On September 18, he chatted with international superstar Josh Groban.

Groban is due to release a brand new album, Harmony, this November. He talked about the album, his upcoming concert series, and more!

Groban talked about the first concert in the series, which will highlight his love of Broadway, on October 3.

"It's always hard to pick a Broadway night because there are so many eras of Broadway, so many eras that I've lived through and eras that I wasn't around for that I wish I lived through," he said. "I have some songs that have been requested a lot, and then I've gotten some requests for songs from shows I've never been in."

"This is going to be a way for me to share that love with so many other countries," he said of the concert. "To be able to express these songs that I love so much to so many more people than I would normally be able to do during a normal, in-person show of Broadway songs."

Groban then went on to talk about his upcoming album.

"The new album was one that I started working on right before the pandemic started and I had about half of the songs decided on at least, some of them recorded," he said. "These are songs that have been requested by the fans for a long time, songs with just the most tremendous arrangements I've ever sung to, some of the most challenging singing I've ever done."

He said that the album was an escape for him, and it includes some songs that he wrote during this time.
