I don’t personally like Robert Pattinson; I don’t like him in Harry Potter and I even hated him in Twilight. But now I found out that he can sing — like literally can sing in a very different Brit-band-like tone, I think, I’m falling for him.
Robert Pattinson’s first love is music — and why the hell he’s making movies that he’s not (honestly) good at.
He is considered as an acoustic balladeer, Pattinson has played a number of live shows since rising to fame in the Stephenie Meyer book adaptations. He even played a song on the “Twilight” soundtrack, and has a number of friends in different bands. Now, according to Us Weekly, Pattinson will be recording his own album.
It will be, according to one of the magazine’s sources, “guitar-based and drums, very organic-sounding, nothing pop… Like stripped-down Ray LaMontagne meets Van Morrison.”
In an interview last year with Collider, Pattinson said,
“I can’t really seem to run the two things [acting and music] at the same time. I don’t understand people who can do a music career and acting at the same time. Seems like such a different part of your brain. I’ve been trying to write some stuff, a lot of my friends have been approached about making their first albums now, and it’s pissing me off a little bit. I think at the end of the year, I think I have a few months off and I might try to do it then, I also might try to write something.”

Check out some of the live singing he did. Really lovely!
