Samantha Morton is embarking on a foray into the world of music as she plans to release her debut album, the actress has revealed.
The Oscar-nominated star - currently wowing US audiences with killer turns in Tales of the Walking Dead and The Serpent Queen - spoke about the intriguing new project in a recent interview with Vogue.
It's unclear if Samantha, 45, will be singing on the record, though she previously showcased her impressive vocal talents performing the Gilbert O'Sullivan song Alone Again (Naturally) in the 1997 film Under the Skin.
'I've also just finished an album with Richard Russell,' the Minority Report star told the publication, referring to the XL Recordings boss, adding: 'So we're currently polishing and mastering that. Richard is just extraordinary.'

The British independent record label XL Recordings is known for working with hugely successful and pioneering artists such as Adele, The Prodigy, Radiohead, M.I.A., and The White Stripes.
The label also signed rock band The Horrors, who happened to feature Samantha in their 2006 music video Sheena Is a Parasite, directed by renowned artist Chris Cunningham, famous for his work with Aphex Twin and Björk.
Label boss Richard spoke about the upcoming record to Lauren Laverne on Wednesday's BBC Radio 6 Music Breakfast Show.
