Seth MacFarlane Releasing Album
Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane is releasing an album.
The cartoonist's debut, "Music Is Better Than Words," sees him sing a number of 40s and 50s big band tracks, including teaming up for duets with artists including Norah Jones and Sara Bareilles.
"It's rare in this day and age to have the opportunity to create an album that celebrates the classic, sophisticated sound of rich, lush swing orchestrations. It was an absolute joy to sing this music," Seth said.
In addition to show tunes, Seth - whose comedies also include American Dad! and The Cleveland Show - also recorded some newer material, including the song "She's Wonderful Too," originally written by film and television composer Joel McNeely, but with additional lyrics and melodies by Seth.
