Eleanor Tomlinson to release debut album

Eleanor Tomlinson is set to take a stab at the music industry by releasing an album of "folk-ish covers".

The "Poldark" actress has teamed up with Anne Dudley, the composer for the period drama, for her debut album, having got the bug when she sang some tunes as her character Demelza in the show.

Speaking at the Ivor Novello Awards on Thursday (18.05.17), Anne said: "Eleanor is a great singer. She sings some of the songs in "Poldark" and we're doing an album of folk-ish covers.

"I want to do it in quite an original way. It's separate from the series. We are hoping to record it this year."

The 61-year-old composer - who took home the Outstanding Contribution to British Music Award at the Ivor Novello Awards - says Eleanor has an "unaffected voice".

She gushed: "She's one of these people who when she sings it's so natural.

"Her parents are both very good singers so there must be something in her genes. She has a very good folk, unaffected voice."

Anne, who was a member of the Art of Noise in the 1980s, has worked on a number of hit records with stars including ABC, Pet Shop Boys, Robbie Williams and Sir Elton John. The composer has also worked on a number of soundtracks to hit movies including "Buster" and "The Full Monty".

Eleanor's character Demelza endured a turbulent relationship with Ross Poldark (Aidan Turner) in the previous series after being told Ross cheated on her with his ex lover Elizabeth Chynoweth (Heida Reed), and could be expecting his child. However, Demelza decided to give the dark-haired hunk a second chance and they rekindled their romance.

Aidan had previously let slip that a follow-up was in the works but his comments came before the second installment had been aired.

"Poldark" is set to return to TV screens in June this year.
