Ansel Elgort is releasing an album.
The 20-year-old actor - who is known for appearing as Augustus Waters in 'The Fault in Our Stars' - is hoping to release his debut electronic music album in February 2015 under the moniker Ansølo.
He said: "I have a record coming out hopefully next month or in February that has crossover potential. It has radio appeal,"
The 'Divurgent' star has shown his musical side before by releasing remixes of Lana Del Rey and Felix Cartal, and has now teased details of his upcoming LP, which he has yet to settle on a name for.
He continued: "It's called 'Shadow', or 'I Will Be A Shadow'. I'm not sure yet. It has a vocal on it. No, it's not my vocal -- it's my production. I wanted to make sure that people knew that I was the producer and not the vocalist."
However, the Hollywood heartthrob assured fans his hope of becoming a successful musician doesn't mean he will be giving up acting, because he has so much spare time to spend making tracks.
He explained to MTV News: "I'm probably doing 4 or 5 movies, but I can do it both at the same time," he said. "The thing is you have so much downtime and like what do you do with that downtime? Do you make an ass out of yourself and party and do stupid things? Or do you stay artistic and do something you love? So that's what music is for me."
