In A Career Pivot We Never Expected, Kate Hudson Is Releasing An Album

Penny Lane would be so proud.

If COVID-19 was good for one thing, it was cementing the fact that staying in a job you despise isn’t rewarding in the least.

It seems that the upper-echelon of Hollywood got the same memo, with Kate Hudson surprising us all with an unexpected career pivot of her own.

Taking to social media, Hudson surprisingly announced she’s currently working on releasing an album, or in her words, “finally realized it’s time to say f#%! it and saaaannngg!!!!!”

Hudson captioned the post with the hashtag #albumincoming, so we can expect an entire long play of Hudson’s sultry vocals to be released sooner than we expected.

While the 43-year-old actress is best known for her roles in iconic rom-coms like How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days and Bride Wars, we should have guessed from her short but sweet sing-a-long to Elton John’s ‘Tiny Dancer’ from the 2000’s cult classic Almost Famous that she was a budding songstress.

Throughout her career, Hudson teased her abilities as a vocalist, including roles in Glee and the controversial 2021 film Music. Of course, Hudson’s Doo-Wap rendition of Ariana’s Grande’s ‘7 Rings’ on That’s My Jam earlier this year certainly proved she can hit all the right notes.

Naturally, the internet was pretty divided by this news.

Some fans were taken aback by this surprising career change, however many of her A-lister friends took to her announcement post to share their support.

Chrome Hearts founder Laurie Lynn stark commented “Baby got a voice 🔥”, while Rachel Zoe commented “YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS FCKING about time woman! 👏🙌 🎤”.

Hilary Swank followed suit and posted “Yeeeeeessssssss, you’re making my dream come true!!!!!”, while Michelle Pfeiffer opted for a simple 🙌🙌🙌🙌”.

While we never had a Kate Hudson album on our 2022 bingo card, we’re grateful for the news.

Here’s hoping the album will include a cover of Carly Simon’s ‘Your So Vain’.
