Listen to Joseph Gordon-Levitt Sing – and Help Him Make a Song
Joseph Gordon-Levitt, 33, sent out a request for musicians on his creative collaboration platform, hitRECord, on Thursday by sharing a new song featuring himself on lead vocals.
The ’80s-inspired tune, “Ready Aim Fire,” started when a musician shared an instrumental track on the site, leading to another collaborator to pen lyrics and Gordon-Levitt to contribute the vocals.
Of course, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard the actor’s smooth singing voice – he’s performed songs with(500) Days of Summer costar Zooey Deschanel and gone on tour with hitRECord, where he’s performed covers of various songs.
Gordon-Levitt founded hitRECord in 2005 as a way to get writers, musicians, artists and filmmakers to collaborate and give feedback on each other’s work.
Listen to “Ready Aim Fire” on hitRECord, and if you’re inspired by what you hear, Gordon-Levitt and his team are accepting contributions to the song through their site until Jan. 30.
The finished product will be shared on a new episode of hitRECord on TV.
