Hugh can’t be serious

Actor turned singer Hugh Laurie last night played material from his debut album on none other but the Later with Jools Holland show.

The British national treasure turned Hollywood superstar played Swanee River, a track from his forthcoming album Let Them Talk – nothing like House music then.

Laurie has been recording a ‘blues’ album of covers, after signing a record deal with a Warner subsidiary label last summer.

Laurie, who found fame in the US for his performances on medical drama House, is a competent pianist, though he has been criticised for using an American accent when he sings.

Let them Talk is due to hit shelves in the UK on 9 May, with a release date for the US yet to be announced.

Have a listen to the lad murdering performing the classic Swanee River on Jools below.
