    And then there were two. Two stars from TV’s Glee recording debut albums, the latest being Mark Salling.  Best known for his character “Puck” on the award winning series, Salling announced the news today via Twitter, telling his followers that the album would be out this Fall. OK.  Wow.  It appears that Glee cast members are dropping solo albums faster than certain members of a defunct British girl group (*cough* GIRLS ALOUD *cough*)…possibly faster!

    FIRST came news back in January that Will Schuester‘s alter ego Matthew Morrison signed an exclusive worldwide recording deal with Mercury Records with an album due out in the Fall.  Morrison told The Hollywood Reporter back in June that his record is going to be a “dance heavy” blend of jazz and R&B…kind of like Michael Buble mixed with Justin Timberlake.  “It’s me and a big orchestra behind me,” the star told THR, who also mentioned writing all of the music.

    OK. I’ll buy it.

    Now for Puck…errr…Mark Salling.  No word yet on which record label Salling is signed with but we have a sound pegged down.  In an interview with Teen Vogue, Salling spilled the beans:

    “I love nineties stuff like Alice in Chains and Nine Inch Nails…I also love jazz greats like Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Herbie Hancock.  I’m combining those two genres to make rock melodic and accessible.”

    OK. I’m with ya.  While the announcement was vague, Salling DID unveil the album’s title, Pipe Dreams, as well as a release date of October 12th. Not gonna lie. I’m getting all tingly inside. I’m definitely looking forward to BOTH Glee solo albums.  Who do you think is going to drop the next album? I’m rooting for Amber Riley (“Mercedes“). Check out the video announcement below:
