Kate Hudson on her album “Glorious”.

The music from a North Hollywood studio may not be familiar yet, but you've certainly heard that voice. Recently, Kate Hudson was refining her songs for her new album 'Glorious'. It is a role the singer-songwriter was born for.

When asked how long she's been writing songs, Hudson replied, “Really bad, all my life!” I guess I wasn't ready for it until now.'

And why is she 'ready' now? “Because I probably don't care what people think anymore. It never made sense, whether it was my own stuff or the fear of ruining my movie career – it just never felt right. Until now. I just do It.”

She made her stage debut at a few small events this year, but she didn't sound like a novice – perhaps because she's always been on stage (or very close).

Her first major film role was as 'band assistant' Penny Lane in Cameron Crowe's 'Almost Famous', which earned her an Oscar nomination:

Smith asked, “How fitting is it that your breakout role was in this film that is essentially a love letter to rock 'n' roll?”

“It kind of makes sense,” Hudson said. “Probably a reason why Cameron hired me.”

She could act, but she also had the pipes: as the daughter of Bill Hudson, of the '70s band The Hudson Brothers, you could say that music is in her blood. “Those Hudson Brothers are insanely talented musicians and great songwriters. My dad is a great songwriter.”

Bill Hudson and wife Goldie Hawn split when Kate was a toddler, so she grew up with her mother's longtime partner, Kurt Russell, and has been estranged from her father for some time.

When asked what her relationship is with her father now, Kate replied: “I don't really have one. But it's like it's heating up. There's a warming going on.” [with] this all happens. But it'll be whatever it'll be, you know? I don't expect that with my father. It's like I just want him to be happy.”

And what makes her happy is singing – on stage, in front of the camera, or both. “Every musical you've seen in the last fifteen years, I've auditioned for it!” she laughed.

Like it? “Oh, oh God, I'll never forget one of my favorite auditions of all time was 'Moulin Rouge' with Baz Luhrmann. And we had so much fun. And at the time it was written for – I was like 19 at the time – it was actually written for a young girl, and Nicole [Kidman] Finally she did it – she wanted to do it! And I was like, Oh well, my chances are gone!

“I mean, all of them, a ton. That's what we do: we audition!” she laughed.

And in between auditions, life happened: relationships, kids and the kinds of things that inspire songs. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Hudson's one song that really rips her heart out, “Live Forever,” is about Ryder, her son with her former husband, Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson.

You and I will exist forever
You walk away yourself
Through the streets you will call home
And I will watch in wistful wonder
While you will meet your fate
I'm there, why aren't you free?
Take over, take your time

Oh, I was just a little girl
Went deep into the world
I thought I could handle it
And you appeared right next to me
My witness and my light
Now we have grown up at a rapid pace

Hudson said, “It's the strongest love I've ever had. So when you had your first child, I was so young, and when I was writing this album, which is two years ago now, Ryder went to the college…I was like, oh my God, my entire adult life I've had an incredible partner, and now I have to like it, so to speak. bye? So that really sounds like all the things I was thinking about in the song.

The album will be released next month and she will definitely be going on tour: in her words, she can't wait to get back on the bus. “It just feels normal,” she said. “They say when you're ready to go solo for the first time, you have to kick the instructor out of the plane, like: Go away! I'm ready! And that's pretty much how I feel right now. I just feel like I'm ready. I don't have the fear. I just feel excited. It's wild.”

At 45, she's still heavily involved in acting projects, but for Kate Hudson, following one dream doesn't mean giving up on another.

She remembers someone telling her she couldn't make music: “There was someone who said to me – and it shocked me a little bit – it was when I was in my early 30s, and they basically said, 'It's done.' , it's over. That's not possible, you're too old.' And you know, for me it wasn't just about being an artist, it was about wanting to write music. So it kind of resonated there.

“And then I was like, 'Uh, **** you,'” she laughed. “No, no one tells me what to do!”
