Exclusive: Introducing Keira Knightley, Folk Singer

9 comments

Anne Hathaway and Anna Kendrick best be watching their pretty lil' backs because Hollywood's uncovered itself another actress — who knows how to sing like a pro.

Sure, Keira-Knightley-the-actress isn't new to Tinseltown, but Keira-Knightley-the-singer-certainly is. Her role in the upcoming movie Begin Again more-or-less forced the actress to stretch her musical chops alongside a little known idol named Adam Levine. (Levine plays her rocker ex-boyfriend whom she seeks sweet revenge on by making her own album — an amazing idea for retribution, by the way.)

We've got the exclusive video for one of the soundtrack's feel-good ballads, "Tell Me If You Wanna Go Home," sung by Knightley herself. It's sweet, poppy, and an all-around solid vocal debut for the actress. Could she nail it in, say, a movie version of Spring Awakening? Perhaps. Listen below and decide for yourself.



The Begin Again soundtrack is now available for pre-order and features Keira, Adam Levine, CeeLo Green.

Begin Again is in theaters Friday.
