Blair Waldorf Holds Quite the Tune

Leighton Meester single.

Turns out Leighton Meester has a lot of multi-talented strings to her bow?

The actress formerly known as Blair Waldorf is about to release her debut LP. Leighton Meester just finished a stint on Broadway where she was starring opposite our own Chris O’Dowd in an acclaimed production of Of Mice and Men and while most people would take a well-earned break after such a career victory, the Gossip Girl actress decides time for an album. Heartstrings is officially released October 28th and Billboard just got the exclusive on the title track. Meester spoke to Billboard, ‘Heartstrings’ speaks to vibe and encompasses a lot of the themes of the rest of the album? It’s been a long time coming and I’m very excited to finally release it.”

We’re big Leighton fans and have suspected a future musical career ever since she guested on Cobra Starships Good Girls Go Bad and starred opposite Gwyneth Paltrow in Country Strong. Also, we love the fact that she made all our boxset dreams come true when she married The OC actor Adam Brody earlier this year in secret. So go ahead, grab the headphones, think cool breathy country with a Tori Amos edge and you’ve got a new track to while away those office hours.
