Who didn’t love Jay Brannan in Shortbus? He was cute and, well, I can’t really say why else his performance was attention getting without getting too explicit (let’s just say the “National Anthem” earned a whole new meaning). Well, Jay is not only a great actor but as most of you already know, he’s also a talented musician and is set to release a new covers album July 7 titled In Living Cover.
Jay covers everyone from the Cranberries to Joni Mitchell to Bob Dylan. The album also has two new originals from Jay, and his first single, a cover of the Verve Pipe’s “The Freshman,” is available on iTunes. The single is already number 3 on iTunes’ Top Singer/Songwriter Song charts, so help a fellow gay out and push him towards number 1!
You can pre-order his CD now at his store site, as well as buy his other CDs and t-shirts. Be sure to also check out his main website to find out details about his upcoming tour and see if the actor/musician is coming somewhere close to you!
