James Franco Releases Debut Album
James Franco is hoping to carve out a new career as a rockstar. The actor will release his debut album MotorCity under the name "Daddy" on Tuesday.
"I know I do a lot of things. I'm very aware of that. I'm sure there are a lot of skeptical people, hearing about me doing music. To me, it all comes from a similar place. It's like using different tools to express things in different ways," he told Rolling Stone.
James has teamed up with his artistic college friend Tim O'Keefe for the album and it also features guest vocals by Motown singer Smokey Robinson who decided to collaborate with the actor after meeting him on a flight. The duo have just unveiled their romantic new music video for "Love in the Old Days," which was directed by James.
The 34-year-old star revealed he wrote and produced MotorCity while filming the Oz: The Great and Powerful in Detroit.
