The man who continues to do it all is doing even more!
We’re talking James Franco and his new EP out today titled, MotorCity.
It’s collaboration between him and musician/artist, Tim O’Keefe. As if the album didn’t have enough star-power already, Smokey Robinson lends his vocals to it as well. He appears on “Crime,” the original version and remixes.
Having Robinson on the record was no coincidence. O’Keefe and Franco first discussed forming a duo with Robinson’s song, “Cruisin,” playing during a drive. They would go on and cross paths again on a flight.
The actor, student and now musician among many other titles must have been feeling soulful during his time in Motown. He was in Detroit for the filming of Oz: The Great and Powerful when he wrote and recorded the EP.
Speaking of star-power, his Spring Breakers co-stars, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens along with two other female beauties grace the EP’s cover in bikinis. Franco also designed the cover. The ladies are rocking Daddy tattoos, why? It’s the name of the duo’s group.
The video you see above is “Love in the Old Days,” directed by Franco. He doesn’t actually do any singing in the video, its spoken word.
What do you think of Franco’s latest endeavor?
