Seth MacFarlane may be funny, but is he a singer?
The creator of “Family Guy” will soon answer that question thanks to a new record deal. According to The Hollywood Reporter, MacFarlane has signed with Universal Republic Records to release a debut album of 1940s and '50s show tunes.
"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 is known for singing spoof songs for his animated projects, but does he have the chops for an actual singing career?
