Awake is a platinum-certified album by the American singer-songwriter Josh Groban. Announced on September 13, 2006, it is Groban's third studio album, and a follow-up to his multi-platinum album Closer. Awake was released on November 7, 2006.
The album has sold more than 2,500,000 copies worldwide. As of September 2008, it has sold 2,000,000+ copies in the US.
The album's first single is "You Are Loved (Don't Give Up)". The album features producers Imogen Heap, Marius De Vries, Guy Sigsworth, Eric Mouquet, Glen Ballard and David Foster (who also worked on previous Groban works). As with all Josh Groban albums, songs on Awake are performed in English, Italian and Spanish. The album offered a more modern vibe to Groban's voice by using more instruments aside from the occasional classic piano accompaniment in his previous albums. The album also featured Groban's head voice technique as evident in most of the tracks in the album.
Awake additionally features tracks that credit Groban's recent movements in South Africa. "Lullaby" and "Weeping" (album tracks 11 and 12) are sung by Groban in conjunction with the renowned South African musical group Ladysmith Black Mambazo, with further contributions from Vusi Mahlasela and Dave Matthews. "Weeping," a pop song originally composed in South Africa, is thematically oriented with the country's history of Apartheid. "Lullaby" is a track included in the album as a supplement to "Weeping," considered one of the album's major highlights. "Lullaby" is meant to flow gaplessly into "Weeping," but the rest of the album uses gaps. The song Now Or Never was produced and co-written with English singer/songwriter Imogen Heap.
The single "You Are Loved (Don't Give Up)" peaked at #9 on the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart, while the tracks "February Song" and "Awake" each peaked at #13 on the same chart.
