Walt Disney Records has released the full track of Josh Groban’s “Evermore” from the Beauty and the Beast soundtrack. Have a listen to the number—written specifically for the new film—above.
The song, penned by the original animated film’s Tony and Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken and lyricist Tim Rice, is performed in the live-action adaptation by the Beast (Dan Stevens) as he laments the loss of Belle after he releases her back to her father. The number effectively replaces “If I Can’t Love Her” from the Broadway adaptation.
Groban currently stars on Broadway in Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812 at the Imperial Theatre. He first announced his contribution to the film soundtrack in January.
The complete soundtrack will drop March 10 prior to the film's March 17 release date. In addition to Stevens, the cast includes Emma Watson as Belle, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, Luke Evans as Gaston, Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, Josh Gad as LeFou, and six-time Tony winner Audra McDonald as Garderobe.
