Robert Pattinson recording a music album UPDATED
UPDATE (7:26 PM): Sorry, Twi-hards - turns out that the US Weekly story which originally reported Pattinson was recording a full-length album is false, according to MTV News. "The report is untrue," a rep for Pattinson told the outlet. "He is not working on an album right now." Well, shoot.
Us Weekly is reporting that two sources have confirmed that the British actor has been laying down original songs in his down-time before promotion for "Breaking Dawn - Part 1" gears up. Two songs from those efforts have apparently been reserved for that film's all-original soundtrack: "Never Think" is a co-write with Sam Bradley and "Let Me Sign."
A clip of the latter has been floating around online for a couple years, for consumption by R-Pattz fans.
"The album Rob will make will be guitar-based and drums, very organic-sounding, nothing pop," a source told the celebrity magazine. "Like stripped-down Ray LaMontagne meets Van Morrison."
There are no labels assigned to the effort, nor is there a prospective drop date. Atlantic/Chop Shop/Summit are behind "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" soundtrack, which is due Nov. 8. None of that tracklist has been released yet; when reached for comment, an Atlantic spokesperson said, "We haven't announced any soundtrack artists quite yet."
