James Franco releases debut album
Sep 23, 2012, 20:21 GMT
James Franco is hoping to carve out a new career as a rockstar.
The actor - who received a lot of criticism after he presented the Oscars with Anne Hathaway last year - will release his debut album 'MotorCity' under the name 'Daddy' on Tuesday (25.09.12).
The duo have just unveiled their romantic new music video for 'Love in the Old Days' which was directed by James.
He told Rolling Stone magazine: 'I know I do a lot of things. I'm very aware of that. I'm sure there are a lot of sceptical people, hearing about me doing music. To me, it all comes from a similar place. It's like using different tools to express things in different ways.'
James has teamed up with his artistic college friend Tim O'Keefe for the album and it also features guest vocals by Motown singer Smokey Robinson who decided to collaborate with the actor after meeting him on a flight.
The album art features the actor's recent 'Spring Breakers' co-stars Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine.
The 34-year-old star revealed he wrote and produced 'MotorCity' while filming the 'Oz: The Great and Powerful' in Detroit.
The movie is due to hit screens next year and also stars Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz.
