US Weekly is reporting that Twilight star Robert Pattinson is in the process of recording his first album. According to the mag, a couple of sources have revealed that Rob — a longtime music fan and apparent guitar player — has been looking to record an album for a while now and just lately found the time to do so. HMMM. Sounds plausible, I think. Click below for the reported deets of R. Pattz’s supposed move into the music world.
Robert Pattinson, rock star? The British actor, 25, is prepping to record an album imminently, two sources tell Us Weekly. “Rob has been kicking a few original songs around for a long time, but his schedule didn’t allow it,” one insider explains of the superstar, who recorded two songs, “Never Think” (which he co-wrote with pal Sam Bradley) and “Let Me Sign” for the original Twilight soundtrack. “Now he’s got some weeks to get everything in line before going back to promoting Breaking Dawn.” But don’t expect a chart-topping album with broad mass appeal and a string of top 40 hits. “The album Rob will make will be guitar-based and drums, very organic-sounding, nothing pop,” explains a second source of the indie-music fan, “Like stripped-down Ray LaMontagne meets Van Morrison.” Pattinson frequently had hotel room jam sessions with other Twilight pals while shooting the flicks in Vancouver and elsewhere. His Twilight costar (and fellow musician) Jackson Rathbone said Kristen Stewart’s man “loves to play the blues. He can hold his own on a guitar. We enjoyed jamming together when we had the time. Very humble and quiet guy.” “Music is his first love!” says the second source. “He’s tortured because he avoids it. When he’s sitting around jamming in the studio, it’s his favorite moment of life.” To prep for the recording session, the guitar player has been “studying on on other instruments — like piano and horns,” the first source reveals. “It’s an obsession for him.”
Oh yes, I can deffo see this happening. Altho Rob says that he hates the limelight, I would bet VERY GOOD MONEY that he has been offered a considerable sum to record music. Can you imagine how much money would be made from exploiting his fanbase in another medium? Albums, concert tickets, merchandise? MILLIONS for the making. This will happen, I wholeheartedly believe it. So … if this album does come out … would you buy it? Would you pay to see R. Pattz in concert?
