Josh Groban Brave Single Artwork

So, maybe we haven’t always been blown away by Josh Groban‘s poperatic style in the past, but we gotta give credit where credit’s due: The new single he just dropped, “Brave,” is radio-friendlier than anything he’s dropped to date — and he did it all without sacrificing his traditional vocal stylings.

The magic touch on this rhythmic, string-laden pop-rock number comes courtesy of producer Rob Cavallo, best known for his work with Green Day — and while “Brave” certainly doesn’t go as hard-edged as Green Day at their tamest (it’s more Coldplay in its bombastic rock sound), the collaboration definitely works. It’ll satisfy his existing fan base with those big theatrical vox, and maybe win him some new ones with the pop hookiness, too. Listen to the tune below.

    tinglies! this man is a- freaking – mazing! I love him.
    I especially love the rythum section here. It gives the song a different feel and sound than other songs out there with a strong beat.

    Love it, and how very timely… Being brave is a great message for our times.

  4. Nice song. I really don’t hear much difference between this and A Time For Miracle sung by Adam Lamber back in 2009 which was also produced by Rob Cavallo.

    He has such incredible power in his voice! He can convey so much emotion and I loved the addition of the soft, stringed rhythm that grew for each chorus. Simply fantastic! Can’t wait for the album!
