Shameless Star Emmy Rossum Releasing New Album

Emmy Rossum, a star of Showtime's Shameless, will be releasing her album, Sentimental Journey, on January 29th.

The album will feature a collection of covers done of classic songs spanning the 1920's to the 1960's.

"I grew up surrounded by classical music singing in the Children's Chorus at The Metropolitan Opera and when I would come home, the house was filled with the voices of Frank Sinatra, Sam Cooke, and Judy Garland," Rossum says.

"For as long as I can remember, my mother would sing 'Apple Blossom Time' to me as a bedtime lullaby. Classics, jazz, and standards really infused my childhood and so it felt quite natural to finally make this record."

Recorded at The Village in Los Angeles, Sentimental Journey was produced by Rossum's friend Stuart Brawley, who also co-wrote and produced her 2007 album Inside Out.

Rossum currently stars in the comedy series Shameless on Showtime with William H. Macy.

She also stars alongside Emma Thompson, Jeremy Irons, and Viola Davis in the upcoming Warner Bros. Pictures feature film Beautiful Creatures, which hits theaters on February 13th, 2013.

But even with her busy acting career, making Sentimental Journey is a project that is close to Rossum's heart. "Whenever I have an artistic compulsion, I follow it," she says.
