And The Piano Guys are doing it again! Taking classical music and making it modern, fun, relaxing, and lovely with their new CD Uncharted! While my husband and I have loved them for a while now my husband is in love with Fight Song/Amazing Grace. It’s amazing and had us totally hooked.
The Piano Guys have made old songs new and their own songs favorites for us. I have always loved classical music but now my whole family does as well.
About The Piano Guys:
With over a billion YouTube views of their more than 50 music videos, The Piano Guys announce the release of their new album Uncharted (Portrait). Set to release on October 28, it includes the upbeat new song “Okay” written by hit-makers Andy Grammer and Dave Bassett. The “Okay” music video is on YouTube now – check it out here.
Uncharted literally charts new territory for The Piano Guys. Continuing their “Wonders of the World” quest, they’ve shot three of their recent hit videos far afield – Scotland, Mexico, Jordan – while “Okay” shows them in the recording studio where they create their inspirational music, and in front of a cheering crowd of 20,000 at the USANA Amphitheatre in their home state of Utah.
Uncharted features all their recent hits, including “Fight Song/Amazing Grace” (video filmed in Scotland), “A Sky Full of Stars,” “Hello/Lacrimosa,” “Jungle Book/Sarabande” (video shot in Chichén Itzá, Mexico), and “Indiana Jones and the Arabian Nights” (video filmed in Petra, Jordan), all available for the first time on CD. The Deluxe Edition includes a DVD featuring all of those recent hit music videos.
The Piano Guys weave their magic from a cornucopia of musical sources. Fusing pop hits from the likes of Justin Timberlake, Adele, Coldplay and Rachel Platten with Hollywood scores from legendary masters like John Williams and Hans Zimmer; timeless classical pieces from Mozart, Händel and Rimsky-Korsakov; and their own original compositions, emerging with a tapestry of inventive, inspiring songs with multigenerational appeal.
The Piano Guys – Steven Sharp Nelson, Jon Schmidt, Al Van der Beek and Paul Anderson – became an online sensation by way of their immensely successful series of strikingly original self-made music videos, which recently surpassed 1 billion views and garnered over 5 million subscribers on YouTube. The band has played sold-out concerts around the world, accrued a massive social media following, topped the Billboard charts, and made over 50 music videos since 2011, including their breakout hit, an innovative multi-handed version of One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful,” and a gorgeous reinvention of the hit song “Let It Go” from Disney’s Frozen. Uncharted is the four Utah dads’ sixth major label album on Portrait/Sony Music Masterworks. It follows Wonders, The Piano Guys, The Piano Guys 2, a holiday album called A Family Christmas, and most recently The Piano Guys – Live! -featuring live music from their sold out Red Rocks and Carnegie Hall concerts.
