Robert Pattinson recording debut album
Wednesday 21 September 2011
Robert Pattinson is recording an album.
The 'Twilight' actor originally considered becoming a musician and is making the most of a break in his schedule by heading to the studio to record his first full-length record.
A source told UsWeekly.com: "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."
Another friend added: "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'."
The 25-year-old actor previously recorded two tracks, 'Never Think' and 'Let Me Sign' for the original 'Twilight' soundtrack.
Sources say the sound of the album will be "organic" and use traditional instruments.
The friend added: "The album Rob will make will be guitar based and drums, very organic-sounding, nothing pop. Like stripped-down Ray LaMontagne meets Van Morrison."
Robert's 'Twilight' co-star, Jackson Rathbone, has previously praised his ability as a guitarist.
He told how Robert "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."
Robert has also said he loves playing piano, and as a child hoped he could make a living from it.
He said: "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."
