Following the release of new indie EP “Homework” last week, Darren Criss has shared the official audio for one of the record’s tracks “Foolish thing”.
The song is the first track on the EP, which it’s his first solo project in over seven years.
About it, the 30-year-old singer-songwriter and former Glee star said: “It’s a new EP called Homework. I liked the name for a couple of reasons. For starters, I made it mostly at home. Whether writing or recording it at my own place or at friends’, it’s about as homegrown as you can get. It was produced mostly with real live instruments, getting back to what really started my life as a songwriter in the first place- guitars & pianos and words & music”.
“The main idea behind this was to embrace me just being me as much as possible in the hopes of it reaching you in some kind of positive way. Secondly, homework always took me way too long to do. It’s true what they say- an artist’s work is never done. It never feels ‘done’ until it’s out there for someone else to experience. And so here I am, ‘finishing’ it by releasing it into the world, and encouraging it to live its own life with you.”
“You who have waited very patiently and supported me tirelessly through the years- my family & friends from school growing up in San Francisco, my friends from college in Ann Arbor, the fans that kicked off my career and the new ones that are interested into diving a little deeper into my backstory. This one’s for you. So here, I did some homework.”
As an actor, Criss is set to star at Andrew Cunanan in the second installment of Ryan Murphy’s “American Crime Story” franchise, “The Assassination of Gianni Versace.”
