    Release notes:

    On 'Illuminations,' Groban worked with veteran producer Rick Rubin, known for
    his critically acclaimed work with Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny
    Cash, and Dixie Chicks among many others. Groban co-wrote the majority of the
    songs, including 'Hidden Away,' which he wrote with Dan Wilson - former leader
    of the band Semisonic and co-writer of several cuts on the Dixie Chicks' 'Not
    Ready to Make Nice.' 'Hidden Away' was recorded live with Groban singing and
    playing piano, Matt Sweeney and Smokey Hormel on acoustic guitars, and veteran
    R&B icon Spooner Oldham on organ, with a striking orchestral arrangement by
    David Campbell added later. The opening piano chords and the unfolding melody
    evoke a timeless Americana, a thread from Stephen Foster through Aaron Copland
    through Paul Simon and Randy Newman, as Groban makes a heartfelt plea not to
    hide true love or one's true self.

    'Illuminations' finds both Groban and Rubin stepping out of each one's
    respective zone and creating an entirely new zone. The bracing result fulfills
    Rubin's vision of a 'fine art' Groban record, marrying the warmth of the
    sweeping American roots of Groban's writing and the grandeur of classical
    settings by matching the live, one-take performances by Groban and the intimate,
    core acoustic band with colorful orchestral arrangements by David Campbell and
    James Newton Howard.
