laurie London, July 27 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Hugh Laurie isn’t joking about getting into blues. The Englishman who was featured on House, has released public information to confirm that he’s under contract with Warner Music Entertainment to work on a New Orleans blues album.

He also added that he is determined to work on it from now till fall. Joe Henry will produce the album and many other unknown music experts will be helping Laurie to work on the album.

Many fans of Fox’s House sort of expected it and weren’t too astonished about the news because of Laurie’s expertise in piano and guitar, which they see regularly in the series. In real life, Laurie is similar to his character, because he learnt everything about music himself, after falling out with his teacher as a child.

He said that he’s very happy about the opportunity and aware that many actors who have tried music have failed. He said that, “I am drunk with excitement at this opportunity. I know the history of actors making music is a checkered one, but I promise no one will get hurt.” He also added that he is “predominantly self-taught (after creative differences with his childhood teacher).”
