His legions of hopeful fans will be sad to hear it, but despite reports and rumors to the contrary, Robert Pattinson is not recording an album.
On Tuesday (September 20), Us Weekly reported that the “Twilight” superstar was itching to record his own songs, but according to the magazine’s two sources, he felt torn between his acting commitments and his love of music. The story further alleged that the 25-year-old would be putting together a guitar-based record in the next few weeks, before the promotional tour for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1″ kicks into gear.
MTV News reached out to Pattinson’s rep, who told us, “The report is untrue. He is not working on an album right now.”
Of course, that is not to say Pattinson might not record music someday — he has previously recorded “Never Think” and “Let Me Sign” for the original “Twilight” soundtrack — but it’s not happening now.
When we caught up with “Breaking Dawn” director Bill Condon at Comic-Con, he confirmed that there would be some familiar musical themes weaved into the fourth film, courtesy of composer Carter Burwell, who scored the first movie. And while the director would not confirm Pattinson’s inclusion on the soundtrack, he hinted that some of the musically inclined castmembers might lend their talents.
“We’re just figuring out [the soundtrack] now,” Condon said during MTV News’ “Breaking Dawn” Comic-Con takeover. “We have a lot of [songs]. We have like 15, I think.”
