Kiefer Sutherland is the latest star to jump from the screen to the recording studio. The Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner announced he is releasing his debut album this summer, and just shared a 26-date U.S. tour to go along with it.

Down in a Hole originated from a collaboration with Jude Cole, whom Sutherland founded Ironwork Records with in 2002. According to Rolling Stone, Sutherland showed Cole a pair of tracks in early 2015, which he’d intended for other artists. However, those songs eventually morphed into Sutherland’s album, which he calls, "the closest thing I've ever had to a journal or diary." Likewise, the Rolling Stone report describes the 11-song album as “folk-tinged.”

25 Actors Turned Musicians

Previously, Ironworks released music from artists like Lifehouse and Billy Boy on Poison. Sutherland left his role at the label in 2009 to focus on other priorities, but it certainly sounds like music is now a renewed priority in his life.
