LISTEN: Preview of Josh Groban singing "Evermore"

Roses are red, violets are blue, here's a preview of "Evermore," you better grab a tissue!

Disney has released a 30 second preview of "Evermore" from the Beauty and the Beast soundtrack. The song is one of the film's three new songs written by Alan Menken & Tim Rice and will be feature in both the film and closing credits. The song is performed by the Beast (Dan Stevens) in the film after he releases Belle from the castle. Composer Alan Menken spoke with Entertainment Weekly last fall:
“‘For Evermore’ is this moment where the Beast now loves Belle, and he realizes that she misses her father, and he acknowledges she’s no longer a prisoner, and when she sees her father’s in trouble, he says, ‘Go to him, go.’ And he voluntarily lets her go,” Menken continues. “He’s basically singing about how he now knows what love is, as he watches her leave, and he’s climbing up the turret of the castle as she recedes into the distance, just watching her go further and further away.”
