Former Neighbours star Jason Donovan has announced the release of his sixth studio album.
AAP reports that Donovan said in a statement, “”It feels great to be going back in the studio. I know exactly how I want the new album to sound and I’m as excited as I’ve ever been about a record.”
If it’s an album of originals, it’ll be his first since 1993’s Between The Lines.
He’s been active in the studio recently, releasing Soundtrack To The 80s in 2010 and Let Me Be Me in 2008, but both albums were predominantly covers, with only four original tracks between them.
Donovan’s debut album, 1998’s Ten Good Reasons, went five times platinum in the UK (and platinum in Finland).
The last decade has seen Donovan contributing musically mainly on stage, appearing in productions of Sweeney Todd, Jesus Christ Superstar, Priscilla Queen Of The Desert, and The Sound Of Music.
He finished third in last year’s UK series of Strictly Come Dancing and currently hosts a show on UK adult contemporary radio station Heart.
Donovan’s new album is due out in March.
