Matthew Morrison - Matthew Morrison Made Eclectic Album

Matthew Morrison has promised his new album will be "eclectic".

The 32-year-old singer-and-actor - best known for playing teacher Will Schuester in 'Glee' - is preparing for the release of his self-titled debut LP and says the tracks reflect his eclectic music taste.

He said: "The album is awesome! My musical taste is eclectic so it has stuff you could hear in a club alongside some very dark songs, plus there's some poppy fun songs."

The record features collaborations with a number of stars, including Sting, Gwyneth Paltrow and Sir Elton John, which Matthew admits was an "incredible" way to launch his music career.

He added: "There's one with Gwyneth Paltrow and one with Elton John. I mean, for my debut album, singing a duet with Elton John is pretty incredible."

The 'Summer Rain' singer developed an interest in musical theatre when he was at school, and though he admits he was mocked by some of his classmates over his hobby, he felt he "got away unscathed" because of his other interests.

He told Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine: "There was an element of teasing but I got away unscathed. I was very athletic too, so I hung out with the football team and dated the homecoming queen."
