Hugh Laurie to bring out blues album
Actor Hugh Laurie has recorded a blues album which is to be released on May 9th.
The star of House plays the piano and guitar on the record, as well as singing lead vocals, reports the Guardian.
He enlisted the help of famous musicians such as Tom Jones, Irma Thomas and Dr John to make the LP, which is entitled Let Them Talk.
Producer Joe Henry said listeners will be surprised by the actor's musical talents.
"I'm sincere when I say I think people will be stunned, not just at how much time he's devoted to his musical life but how interesting his take on the music is," he said.
Laurie has previously been seen playing the guitar in episodes of House, while he also performed on the piano on Meat Loaf's recent Hang Cool Teddy Bear record.
The star is set to showcase his musical talents in a live setting when he closes the Cheltenham Jazz Festival in May, while a gig in London is also in the pipeline.
Cheltenham's event is taking place between April 27th and May 2nd this year, with the bash including Jamie Cullum as its guest director.
