Kate Hudson is now a singer! The actress is pursuing a career as a crooner and has already recorded 26 songs for her upcoming debut album
Kate Hudson is adding another talent to her repertoire.
The 44-year-old acclaimed actress is preparing to release music this year and she recently dished on her progress. While speaking with E! News on the Critics’ Choice Awards red carpet last week, she said, ‘I’ve got 26 songs. We’re dwindling them down.’
The beauty has closely been associated with the music world: she played a groupie in Almost Famous, sang a song in the movie Nine, was married to singer Chris Robinson and engaged to rocker Matt Bellamy.

‘It’s just been a great, creative, completely immersive experience for me and something I had to get out and I’m getting it out!’ she gushed.
Kate, who’s teased her musical talent in the past, added, ‘We’ll see what happens.’
The daughter of entertainment legend Goldie Hawn first shared her plans to pursue music last December while visiting The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
‘I love to sing,’ Kate told Jimmy before revealing with a giggle, ‘I just feel weird saying it — I’ve been making a record.’

The blonde beauty continued, ‘I’ve been making a record for like a year.
‘I had this thing in COVID. Every time you’re doing interviews, people are like ”Do you have any regrets?” I’m like ”Oh, I’m early 40s. Not yet.”
‘But during COVID I was like, “What am I doing? I’ve been writing music since I was 19. And I’ve never shared it.” I just thought that would be one of my great regrets,’ she admitted.
The mother-of-three clarified: ‘I have no expectation. I just want to put a record out. So, I’m doing it.’

Hudson gave fans a taste of her musical prowess in a scene from the 2003 blockbuster How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days.
In the film, she and costar Matthew McConaughey performed a wonky rendition of Carly Simon’s 1972 tune You’re So Vain.
And one year ago the entrepreneur stunned fans during another appearance on The Tonight Show as she sang a doo-wop version of Ariana Grande’s song 7 Rings.
