David Duchovny releasing album
David Duchovny will release his debut album, 'Hell or Highwater', in May
David Duchovny is releasing an album.
The 'X Files' actor is "shocked" he has created 12-track LP 'Hell or Highwater' - which comes on May 12 - but can't wait to share his music with his fans.
He said in a statement: "Making this record is a dream come true, but I never had this dream - it's still a shock when I think about how all this music happened.
"What I do know is that I feel these songs represent the truest expression that I've ever been able to achieve and I look forward to sharing it with everyone."
The 54-year-old star previously compared his music to 'Nightswimming' hitmakers R.E.M..
He said: "I can only compare my music to artists that you know, so it's going to sound like I'm bragging.
"But in my wildest dreams, I would sound like Wilco or R.E.M. I'd put it somewhere in there - if I'm lucky."
And David also insisted he doesn't mind whether anyone buys his record or not.
He said: "Once I started playing music, I started thinking, 'Gee, I should be able to write lyrics.' And I just fell backwards into the whole thing.
"It's just been a real pleasure in my life, regardless of who buys it and what people think of it when it comes out. It's been a lifesaver just to be able to play music, write songs and think about singing songs to friends."
