Kate Hudson is no longer a bandaid – it’s time to join the band. The 43-year-old actress just announced that she will be releasing her first-ever album next year.
In 2000, at the age of 19, Hudson got her big break as the precocious Penny Lane in Cameron Crowe’s cult classic. Almost famousand earned a Golden Globe in the process.
Now she’s back together with co-star Jimmy Fallon, who has appeared as slimy band manager Dennis Hope, to talk about her plans to start a music career of her own.
Speaking of That Tonight show On Monday (December 12), Hudson said she was inspired to record music during the pandemic while having a little YOLO moment.
Apparently she has been singing since she was young, but has never dared to “share” anything officially.
“You know, I had this thing [during] covid … Every time you do interviews, people ask, ‘Do you have any regrets?'” she said. “I’m like, ‘I’m in my early forties… not yet.’ But during Covid I was like, ‘You know what am I doing?’ I just thought that was one of my big regrets,” Hudson explained, revealing her thought process behind the decision.
It was actually in April when Hudson first revealed she was going into the music industry.
“Finally realized it’s time to say fuck it and saaaannngg! #albumincoming #myikigai,” Hudson commented on an Instagram post showing her in the studio.
The word “ikigai” is Japanese and means “reason for existence”.
“I have no expectations,” Hudson told Fallon. Instead, their intentions are entirely self-fulfilling: “I just want to put out one record, and that’s why I’m doing it. And I’m really proud of it. I can’t wait.” And neither can we.
