Composer, actor, musician, comedian, and now singer/songwriter, Tim Minchin will release his debut album this year.
A release date hasn’t been announced for the album yet, but the first single, Leaving LA, is due to be released on 13th March.
“I’ve been writing songs for 35 years, and have never released a studio album. Too many distractions,” Minchin said. “Signing with BMG has given me focus, and the confidence to aim for a record that isn’t defined by anyone else’s expectations. I’m loving the freedom, loving the process, and loving the team at BMG.”
Minchin wrote the music and lyrics for Matilda the Musical, which won a record seven Olivier Awards, 13 Helpmann Awards and five Tony Awards. He also wrote music and lyrics for the musical adaption of Groundhog Day, which has been staged in both London and New York.
