Josh Groban Debuts ‘If I Walk Away’ Music Video
Artist Josh Groban has released a new black and white documentary style music video for his song ‘If I Walk Away’. The clip gives Groban fans an inside look at the thirty-one year old’s recent tour over this past year as he shows pieces of his private life, and trek on the road.
Traveling from city to city, the new video was actually shot by Josh's brother Chris. "My brother Chris shot this video during my tour this past year," Groban recently told AOL. “It's my favorite video to date and I'm excited for everyone to see it."
The track comes off of Groban's November 2011 released studio album entitled ‘Illuminations’. His recent collection of hit songs has earned him a platinum certification after selling over 1 million copies.
Talking to Artist Direct late last year about his successful album, Groban touched on how he approached his latest work, and how he manages to get to that powerful place, creating 'Illuminations'. Groban also spoke about working with producer Rick Rubin.
“I have a real connection to music. Even as a kid, I found music to be my best and most honest outlet. It was a language I could understand. I was too shy to make friends, but I could remember a melody if I heard it once. I could sit down with a piano and figure it out. It gave me that sense of understanding in a world of misunderstanding.”
“I do my warm ups so my voice in good shape, but going "there" emotionally and creatively? It is the song that I connect with; it has to hit me when I perform it. It's the song. I can't sing stuff that doesn't move me; I am not a good liar. That's the blueprint. It started with the piano and a dry vocal on this record. If it didn't move Rick or I, then it was not worth the bells and whistles being put on it. We didn't make real noise for a year. We blueprinted these songs. There wasn't the trap of too much self-satisfaction, which is so easy to fall into in the studio world. You get excited about a song and you are close to it, and you think, 'Wait till we throw bells and whistles on this' and you listen to it in the car for a week, thinking, 'This is the greatest thing I've ever done' and then you play it for someone…and it doesn't connect. You can't be like, 'If this only had those French horns on it, it'd be different.' That's a crutch. We were just playing melodies and lyrics. If Rick and I looked at each other, and didn't think, 'Wow, that's freaking awesome,' we didn't bother having it arranged."
