Edited to add this note from Groban's website:
"This free download is only available until 9/14 at 10am PST!"
The first time I heard Josh Groban was on the radio, singing "O Holy Night"--in tones so pure it brought tears to my eyes. His voice is so astonishingly beautiful, and so is the new song he co-wrote, "Hidden Away." Something inside me just thrills when I hear this! OMG, I wish I hadn't sold my guitar! I
to learn this piece!
He's coming out with his new album, Illuminations
, in November and I can hardly wait. "Hidden Away" is the opening track, and (for now at least) you can download it for free at http://www.joshgroban.com
. Click on "Get Started"--it's pretty easy.
I also received a unique ID for referrals, but I'm not interested in tracking myself on the "Leaderboard" thingy. But if you have fun with that kind of thing, drop your referral ID into all your communiques and see what happens! You'll get the ID when you download the music.
But anyway, hurry
, because in the email I received with the ID, it said my friends would only be able to download it till Sept. 14th, which is tomorrow already--and I don't know it that applies to the official website as well, or if it's only for my referral ID.
P.S. One more little thing: If you download the song, would you listen especially to the second line? I wrote out the lyrics for myself so that I can learn the song by heart; but danged if I can figure out the second line, particularly the first couple words.
[Edited to add: Never mind! I should've figured that the words would be out on the lyrics sites! LOL! I'm still going to have to hope for the correct lyrics to be included with the album though, because there is a boatload of disagreement between the words on the various lyrics sites as compared to lyrics posted by various folks on YouTube. Argh! A month and a half to wait! ;D ]
