Damian Lewis is cementing his move from screen to sound after landing a record deal.
The Homeland actor has secured a contract with Decca Records and will put out his debut album Mission Creep on June 16.
He’s made moves into music in recent years with a series of small live shows and today drops the first single from his record, called ‘Down On The Bowery.’
Damian is said to have channeled his heartache into the album two years after the death of his Peaky Blinders actress wife Helen McCrory.
Talking about writing it, Damian said: “I suddenly had a lot to say. People will judge if it’s any good or not, but for me it felt natural.”
He said he decided to make the album in lockdown having been a regular busker when he was younger.
The A-lister added: “I wanted the album to give a sense of a journey to this point – from busking ’til now.”
Decca also has Jeff Goldblum, who has successfully made the move from movies to music, on its books.
It sounds like Damian is in safe hands.
