Michael Cera takes an interesting new career path

Actor Michael Cera, famous for his roles in Arrested Development, Scott Pilgrim, Superbad and a hundred other great films, has released a surprise album.

The album, titled True That, was released on BandCamp this week and amazingly, isn't terrible. It's 18 tracks long and gives the charmingly sparse bio: “Michael Cera was born in Canada in 1988 at the tender age of zero." It's free to stream, or you can buy the album online for $7.

This isn't Michael's first try at the music biz, he's played bass for the supergroup Mister Heavenly, and played the mandolin for Weezer's 2010 album Hurley.

Speaking about his debut album, Michael seems embarrassed more than anything else.

"I didn't want anyone to take it seriously or think that I was taking it seriously by it being a big thing."

"It's there now. Now people can hear the stuff I've spent time with and care about for a long time."
