'Poldark' actress Eleanor Tomlinson has announced her debut album 'Tales From Home' and confirmed the collection of folk inspired covers will be released in May
'Poldark' star Eleanor Tomlinson has unveiled the first details for her debut album 'Tales From Home'.
The 25-year-old actress - who has made her name as Demelza Poldark in the BBC One period drama - has announced that her anticipated LP will be released in May this year, and will feature a number of folk inspired covers.
Eleanor has worked with the show's soundtrack composer Anne Dudley on the record, which will include fresh interpretations of tracks like Simon & Garfunkel's 'Homeword Bound', and 'Hushabye Mountain' from 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang'.
Dudley - who was awarded the Outstanding Contribution to British Music award at the 2017 Ivor Novello Awards - has produced the album, having worked with the likes of Sir Elton John, Tina Turner and Robbie Williams in the past.
'The Fully Monty' composer Dudley has previously recorded with the likes of Elton John, Tina Turner and Robbie Williams, and Eleanor has heaped praise on her work.
She said: "I'm incredibly excited to announce the release of my debut album Tales From Home. To have the opportunity to perform some of my favourite songs with Anne Dudley's brilliant new arrangements has been wonderful, not to mention working alongside my brother Ross.
"I would like to thank the 'Poldark' fans who inspired me to make this album. Without their support, this would not have been possible."
Fans first got a taste of her talent when she sang in the show, and Dudley previously hailed her skills as a singer.
She said: "She's one of these people who when she sings it's so natural. Her parents are both very good singers so she has it in her genes."
