Agent Mulder Sings! David Duchovny to Release Album in May

Once-and-future “X-Files” star is ready to lay his “uniquely lyrical, troubadour style” on the world

Here’s a truth that’s really out there.

David Duchovny, known for his roles on “The X-Files” and “Californication,” will release his debut solo album, “Hell or Highwater,” on May 12.

The album, which will include 12 songs written by the actor, will be released via ThinkSay Records and distributed via the Caroline/Universal Music Group.

The title track, which serves as the album’s first single, is available Tuesday. The album is available for presale now via Amazon and iTunes.

According to a release for the album, “Hell or Highwater” is “firmly embedded in his uniquely lyrical, troubadour style.” Which will come as a surprise to the vast majority of the world, who up to this point wasn’t aware that Duchovny has a uniquely lyrical, troubadour style.

“Making this record is a dream come true, but I never had this dream — it’s still a shock when I think about how all this music happened,” Duchovny said. “What I do know is that I feel these songs represent the truest expression that I’ve ever been able to achieve and I look forward to sharing it with everyone.”

The other tracks on the album, none of which appear to revolve around the topic of alien visitation, include  “Unsaid Undone,” “Lately It’s Always December” and “Positively Madison Avenue.”

Sadly, Duchovny likely won’t have time to tour behind the album, given his acting schedule. In addition to starring in NBC’s upcoming series “Aquarius,” he’ll reprise his role as FBI Agent Fox Mulder in a six-episode revival of “The X-Files” on Fox.
