Actress drops glittery pop jam co-written with Linda Perry and fiancé Danny Fujikawa
Penny Lane is alive and well in Kate Hudson‘s “Talk About Love,” the actress’ debut single.
The pop gem opens with glittery synths and Hudson’s sleek vocals, with a hypnotic chorus of “Tell me baby/Nothing but the truth will do.” She co-wrote the track with Linda Perry and her fiancé, musician Danny Fujikawa.
“It’s like the shadow self,” Hudson said in a statement. “Those things you don’t see, but are always with you and a part of you. I have always had a room for my piano ever since I began living on my own. I’ve been caught up writing and witnessing life in songs since I was a child. But it always comes down to the moment, and the ability to make sure you can be there for the music. Finally, for me, that time is now.”
Hudson also added that there’s an entire album on the way (which she confirmed back in 2022 during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon).
“How do you ever know?” she said. “And then one day, you’re writing, and you think, ‘Now.’ Linda challenged me to write a full album once she heard me sing, and that’s when I decided to complete the song cycle. It might’ve been crazy to some, but once I committed, all the songs, the sounds, and even the way the recording process came together, the timing was right.”
Earlier this month, Hudson stopped by The View to discuss the legacy of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days — her rom-com with Matthew McConaughey that turned 20 last year — and the current state of the genre. “I’m going to do a master class on rom-coms,” she joked.
