‘Glee’s’ Matthew Morrison dropping debut album in fall
Fans of Morrison know the 31-year-old is no stranger to musical theater and has had roles in Broadway productions such as "Hairspray," "South Pacific" and "The Light in the Piazza," which landed him a Tony nomination.
The singer-actor is scheduled to release the album through Mercury Records, home to Duffy and the Noisettes.
While a solo album from Morrison is welcomed over at Show Tracker, here's to hoping it's less Micheal Buble and more Justin Timberlake-Robin Thicke-Jon B. – Morrison's take on "I Wanna Sex You Up" is on repeat.
It's hard to imagine that Morrison will be the only "Glee" star to ink a deal. Before landing the role of Mercedes, Amber Riley had an ill-fated audition for that other mega-hit show on Fox. I'd like to believe Riley and Jennifer Hudson have grabbed dinner and drinks and had a major "in your face, Simon & Co." laugh-fest.
Morrison is nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor -- Television Series Musical or Comedy for his role in "Glee." The 66th annual Golden Globe Awards telecast airs at 5 p.m. PST Sunday on NBC.
In the meantime, fans can get their fix of Morrison with two “Glee” soundtracks and the DVD box set, "Glee -- Volume 1: Road to Sectionals," all of which are in stores now.
"Glee," which got an early second-season pickup, will return with new episodes April 13.
