Looks like Naya Rivera (Santana) and Amber Riley (Mercedes) aren’t the only Glee cast members with their own solo albums in the works!
A new profile of A&R exec and music producer Ron Fair appears in the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter, and within its many details – including those about his current role at NBC’s The Voice – is a teeny, tiny tidbit of info pointing to the career path of one… DARREN CRISS!
Cue collective “SQUEEEEE!”
Amidst talk of a host of other projects currently on deck for Fair, he “also reveals that he’s had ‘extensive meetings’ with Glee star Darren Criss (Blaine) about his debut album for Columbia Records.”
We’ll give you a moment to recover…
Darren, who landed on Broadway earlier this year to great acclaim (and cash-flow!), released a five-song EP entitled Human in July 2010 – but a full-length solo album has long-eluded fans. (And trust us, you are Not Alone if you find yourself wanting more.)
So, though the THR profile makes no mention of our main questions – What sort of songs? When will it be released? – it does give us a lil’ somethin’ to look forward to…
