Hayden Panettiere has made use of the spare time she had while the writer's strike was going on earlier this year by working on her album. The starlet who claimed worldwide fame through her indestructible cheerleader role in TV series "Heroes" finished shooting the show in December 2007 due to the WGA strike.
When asked what she had done while not filming, Panettiere said "Working on my album...The thing about the album that I wanted the most was making sure that every song didn't sound the same." According to her MySpace page, the debut studio album from the actress will be released later this year in Spring.
The record has been baked for three years and Panettiere admitted to MTV that she has "grown up a lot" since she started. She recently contributed a track called "Try" for the soundtrack to 2007 film "Bridge to Terabithia".
When asked by People what kind of music genre inspires her this time being, Panettiere responded, "Like pop, rock - maybe more of an R&B thing. I have such eclectic tastes in music. I love rock, hip-hop, I like pop. I love Natasha Bedingfield and Anna Nalick."
