Ryan Gosling to Release Album


There have been several successful actor-turned-singer stories: Zooey Deschanel, Jennifer Lopez, Kylie Minogue, Jenny Lewis, Jared Leto--- and there have been even more unsuccessful actor-turned-singers: Lindsay Lohan, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Love Hewitt, David Hasselhoff, wait can I stop there? I think Hasselhoff takes the cake.

And now there is a new actor (who stole every woman’s heart as a poetry reading romantic in The Notebook) who hopes to make his way into the music world: Ryan Gosling.

The 28-year-old actor has paired with friend Zach Shields to form the band Dead Man’s Bones which is set to release their self titled debut on October 6.

The album will feature the Silverlake Conservatory Kids Choir from Los Angeles, reports Pitchfork Media.

The most peculiar part of this group is the way in which the band describes their musical style: It’s “Disney haunted mansion, doo wop and 60s girl groups.”

That description alone has peaked my interest, but we will have to wait a couple months before we see which category Dead Man’s Bones will be put in---I’m hoping for ‘successful’. Noah from the Notebook deserves a happy ending.

To listen to a live recording of the Dead Man's Bones track "In the Room Where You Sleep" you can go to the band's Myspace page by clicking here.
