Kate Hudson drops first song ‘Talk About Love’ with start of her musical career

Kate Hudson, who starred in Almost Famous and earned an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of Penny Lane, is no longer the beloved groupie (sorry, Band-Aid). Instead, she is now a star.

Hudson’s debut track, “Talk About Love,” was released on Tuesday, fulfilling her long-standing pledge to begin a musical career. With the lyrics, “Take my hand and let me guide you out into the endless night / But why we chasing all these butterflies? / Let them go now,” Hudson is singing to a lover in the dazzling pop song about letting go and not being frightened of heartbreak.

“Talk About Love” was co-written by Hudson, Linda Perry, and his musician fiancé, Danny Fujikawa, according to a press release. The actress has signed a record deal with Virgin Music Group, and her debut album, which has no title yet, will be released later this year.

Hudson explained in a statement regarding the song, “You only have one first single, “and I wanted it to be something delicious and sexy and all the things that I believe in. I wanted it to be open and seeking, searching to find something powerful. But I also wanted the music to be the rock, the pop, the dance music and even a bit of the alternative records I love. It was a lot to put into one song, but thankfully, I had some wonderful people working with me. And so, here we are!”

Hudson has been previewing the debut of his new single on Instagram, leading up to its release. She recently shared a video describing her entry into the music industry and revealed the glitzy cover art, which portrays her wearing a furry coat and dramatic cat-eye makeup.

In an April 2022 Instagram photo that had her slaying a microphone, Hudson, 44, first disclosed her intentions to pursue a career in music. “Finally realized it’s time to say f#%! it and saaaannngg!!!!!” she said on her blog at the time.

Hudson maintains that she is totally dedicated to her career as a musician, despite the fact that it doesn’t appear like she would be leaving Hollywood anytime soon—just last week, it was revealed that she would be appearing in Mindy Kaling’s next comedy series at Netflix. She stated, “For me, it was like, if I’m gonna do it, I’m gonna really do it. Like, I’m gonna commit to the process.”

She went on, “My relationship with music is the most vulnerable I think I’ve ever been creatively because there’s nothing half-assed about it.”
