The actor, who plays Draco Malfoy in the “Harry Potter” movie franchise, signed a record deal with an independent label last year.
“Hawaii” is the first song he has released from is debut album. It features guitar and piano and has the theme of Felton wishing he was relaxing on the US island of the song’s title. It also speaks of his struggles to write songs.
Felton is considering moving his music more into the UK grime scene populated with artists such as N-Dubz. He is desperate to change his current image and has spoken, perhaps jokingly, about wanting to become a rapper.
“I’m going to change my image – backward caps, the lot. It’s still under wraps so I can’t really talk about it,” said Felton (23).
However, that’s not what “Hawaii” is about. He has reportedly worked with McFly’s Tom Fletcher on his debut album. Some of his earlier songs were released on iTunes but now he has a record deal with Six String Productions.
Feltman also has no plans to give up acting. However, he expressed doubts that it was his acting abilities that got him the part in the “Harry Potter” movies as Draco Malfoy. He thinks it was simply because he looks like the character as described by author, J.K. Rowling.
Anyway, his looks are popular with co-star Emma Watson, who recently revealed having a crush on Felton. However, the two are just friends, in relationships with other people at the moment.
Feltman can soon be seen in the movie, “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” fresh from his success at the Teen Choice Awards 2011 where he scooped the Choice Movie Villain award.
