LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) It's no joke: "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane has signed a record deal to release his debut album.


MacFarlane has joined forces with Universal Republic Records to deliver an album of 1940s and '50s show tunes paying tribute to Broadway classics. Unlike the songs on his animated Fox hits, these aren't spoofs, but straight-up renditions of songs by Rodgers and Hammerstein, Lerner and Loewe, and other talents.
"It's rare in this day and age to have the opportunity to create an album that celebrates the classic, sophisticated sound of rich, lush swing orchestrations," MacFarlane said. "It will be an absolute joy to sing this music, and I look forward to working with the entire team at Universal Republic on what we intend to make an exceptional project."
MacFarlane frequently sings the parody songs from his shows at live events, and he received an Emmy nomination for music and lyrics this year.
The album will be produced using vintage techniques, and MacFarlane will be backed by an orchestra and a big band. Universal Republic is an imprint of Universal Music Group.

He was one of the soloist in the BBC MGM Movies Prom last year, in which he was fantastic! Such a lovely voice, and also showtunes are always a win with me, so this is all sounds fab!

Edit: If anyone's interested, here's a link to one of his performances in last year's Proms...

Best family guy episode EVER. One of my friends got to see him at the Proms and met him afterwards. Needless to say, I am so jealous.
