Phoenix Eyes Music Career

Actor JOAQUIN PHOENIX is planning to launch a music career after uncovering his singing talent playing JOHNNY CASH in biopic WALK THE LINE.
The 33-year-old star won a Grammy Award for his contribution to the 2005 film's soundtrack - and is now working on recording an album with U.K.-based rock band The Charlatans.
And The Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess reveals the Oscar-nominee is a perfectionist, "Once he learned to play guitar he found that he had quite a lot of demons inside himself that he wanted to expel through music.
"All the tracks that me and (Charlatan's manager) Alan (MCGee) worked with him on were brilliant. But he just kept scrapping everything or re-doing everything. I'm trying to get Alan to force him to put it out."
A release date has yet to be scheduled for the album.
