The multi-talented star is best known for his roles as Owen Shaw in Fast and Furious 6 and Bard the Archer in The Hobbit films.

Speaking about his time recording his latest offering, in which he worked with songwriter Amy Wadge, Luke revealed: “I wrote it in Florida during a period of isolation as the sun rose over the Atlantic Ocean.

“I was sitting on the beach and the horizon was blue like the sea. You couldn’t tell the difference between the two.

“Then three hours later I zoomed in with Amy in Pontypridd and we completed a demo within two hours. This is really amazing to me because I have never written.

“I knew I could do it, but I just needed guidance. And who better to do it with than Amy Wadge?

A Song For You takes its title from the Donny Hathaway song, which is one of Luke’s lifelong favorites and with which he opens the 14-song selection.

Luke’s collaboration with Nicole Kidman came after the actors met while filming the Hulu miniseries Nine Perfect Strangers in Australia.

They spent five months working together, bonding together with Nicole’s husband Keith Urban over their shared love of music.

The friends share a singing teacher early in their careers.

The Welshman is in high demand as an actor in the UK and internationally.

From cinematic thrill ride to prestige TV drama, classic animation on the big screen to police procedurals on the small screen, action to comedy to thriller.

He has also had a very successful career on stage, starring in Rent and Miss Saigon, and recently starred in the 2022 film Pinocchio.

However, his first love was always music. “I just feel really lucky as a singer, my first love, to do it again,” he said.

“And to sing these magical songs on an album that I will have for the rest of my life. I want everyone else to share this joy too.
