Now that he has a break in his acting schedule, Hollywood hunk Robert Pattinson wants to launch in a musical career by recording an album. The 25-year-old actor originally wanted to become a musician and he is now heading to the studio to record his first full-length album.
“Music is his first love! He’s tortured because he avoids it. When he’s sitting around jamming in the studio, it’s his favourite moment of life,” an insider said. “Rob has been kicking a few original songs around for a long time, but his schedule didn’t allow it. Now he’s got some weeks to get everything in line before going back to promoting The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.”
According to insiders, the sound of his album will be “organic” and use traditional instruments. “The album Rob will make will be guitar based and drums, very organic-sounding, nothing pop. Like stripped-down Ray LaMontagne meets Van Morrison,” said a source.
The Twilight star has previously recorded two tracks, Never Think and Let Me Sign for the original movie soundtrack. He also revealed he loves playing piano, and as a child he dreamed this would be his job. “I love the piano. I never really had any aspirations to be an actor when I was young. I wanted to play the piano in a bar, to be the old dude with a whiskey glass,” he dished.
