Actor JOAQUIN PHOENIX is planning to launch a music career after uncovering his
singing talent playing JOHNNY CASH in biopic WALK THE LINE.
The 33-year-old star won a Grammy Award for his contribution to the 2005
film’s soundtrack – and is now working on recording an album with U.K.-based
rock band The Charlatans.
And The Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess reveals the Oscar-nominee is a
perfectionist, “Once he learned to play guitar he found that he had quite a lot
of demons inside himself that he wanted to expel through music.
“All the tracks that me and (Charlatan’s manager) Alan (McGee) worked with
him on were brilliant. But he just kept scrapping everything or re-doing
everything. I’m trying to get Alan to force him to put it out.”
A release date has yet to be scheduled for the album.
