Let’s just put into perspective some of the conflicting information:
There are two posts “Josh Groban – A Collection” and “Josh Groban In The UK” which state that “Josh Groban – A Collection” will be released November 10th.
Again two posts, but this time, the “Josh Groban - A Collection” post has a release date of November 10th, while the "Josh Groban in the UK" post has the release date as November 17th.
On the UK website of the Noble PR Consultancy firm, the release date is stated as December 1st. From this website there's a link to www.joshgrobanmusic.com, which has the release date back to November 17th. Can anyone see a pattern forming here (in that no one really knows what's going on)???
Warner Brothers Australia has confirmed November 15th as the release date for ‘down under’.
And here’s a few on-line websites with their release dates
BOL (Netherlands) - November 7th
Take2 (South Africa) - November 10th
Chaos (Australia) - November 17th
CD Wow (UK) - November 17th
Amazon (UK) – December 1st
HMV (UK) – December 1st
Play (UK) – December 1st
CD Universe (USA) – December 2nd
So, I guess that sometime between now and Christmas we can expect that the CD will be released.
Apart from this – there are quite a few other Josh-related items on the agenda. Here’s my quick summary (apologies now if I've missed something, but as you can see, there's quite a few things on the cards):
- Brian McKnight “I'll Be Home For Christmas” – Josh duets on "Angels We Have Heard On High". This CD is currently available. (**This song also featured on Josh's CD "Noel")
- Charles Aznavour “Duos” – Josh joins Charles to sing "La Boheme". Release date December 5th.
- Placido Domingo – In his “Late Night Kitchen Time” video blog, Josh shared that he had recently recorded a duet with Placido Domingo. CD title and release date unknown. Update - the title of the CD is "Amore infinito. Canzoni ispirate alle poesie di Giovanni Paolo II - Karol Wojtyla" (the English translation is Endless Love. Songs inspired by the Poetry of John Paul II - Karol Wajtyla). The (Italian) release date is Nov 28th.
- "Hit Man: David Foster & Friends” – Josh performs Alla Luce del Sole; Bridge Over Troubled Water with Brian McKnight and You Raise Me Up. Release date November 11th. (It appears that the three songs will be on the DVD, and Bridge Over Troubled Water will appear on the CD)

[Of course, the dates above are accurate at time of posting, but I guess we all know that they're bound to change, so I’ll update when (and if) further information is made available.]
