DOWNTON Abbey’s Septimus Spratt has revealed he’s released a pop album inspired by David Bowie.
Jeremy Swift, who played the sarcastic butler in the ITV period drama, made the revelation to Lorraine Kelly on Monday.
Showing off a clip from his latest music video, Jeremy beamed as he opened up about releasing the crowd funded album which is called Everything’s A Joke.
The actor had 55 people donate £9,930 to help him make his album a reality.
Jeremy explained: “I didn’t have a great big plan. It wasn’t a bucket list thing to do – I’ve always been into music.
“I always have been musical. We’ve always had music in the house.”
Jeremy said: “I was a huge fan of Bowie. Star Song is about his effect.
“It sounds a bit early Ziggy so I thought let’s make it about Bowie.”
Not everyone is as enthusiastic about his music as Jeremy however.
He added: “My kids are so uninterested. I dedicated it to my wife and kids and they are so uninterested they don’t even know that.
“There’s a lot of eye rolling in our house. I know it’s a bit David Brent but so what!”
Jeremy wrote on his crowdfunding page: “So, my project is to finish my album which will be around 12 songs in length.
“I have been playing and making music for as long as I can remember and I am so pleased and confident with what I’ve been up to in the last 2 years that I’ve felt that I had to get it out to you lovely people!”
