Josh Groban: The Billboard Cover Story

Operatic pop singer-songwriter Josh Groban will release his sixth studio album, "All That Echoes," on Feb. 5, 2013, through Reprise Records.

Groban's follow-up to 2010's "Illuminations" will be available for pre-order on Amazon on Tuesday (Nov. 20) and iTunes next Tuesday, Nov. 27. After pairing with producer Rick Rubin for "Illuminations," Groban tapped Rob Cavallo (Green Day, Paramore) for his latest full-length.

"From beginning to end, this project has blossomed with absolute joy and inspiration," Groban says in a press statement. "Together with Rob Cavallo and all the incredible collaborators, we set out to create songs that could bridge the old and the new, the light and the dark of life and love ... all that echoes in our souls. This album makes me feel good, and I hope others feel the same way."

After breaking onto the scene with his self-titled debut in 2001, Groban scored a smash hit with "You Raise Me Up," from his 2003 effort "Closer." "Noel," his debut Christmas disc, has sold 5.5 million copies according to Nielsen SoundScan, and was the best-selling album of 2007, despite being released in mid-October of that year.

Groban embarked on the Straight To You tour in 2011 to support "Illuminations," and also co-starred in the film "Crazy, Stupid, Love" last year. No tour dates supporting "All That Echoes" have yet been announced.
