Castle star Jon Huertas is exercising his musical chops.
The actor announced Monday that he will release his first full-length album, Grown & Sexy Music, on June 11 through MidRats/Slydoggie Productions. The album, co-produced with Christian Davis, falls under what Huertas calls “urban pop,” with dance and R&B/pop tracks.
Jon Huertas doesn’t just play the cute and (more or less) single cop, Detective Javier Esposito on ABC’s “Castle.” As it turns out, the man is a singer as well. And Huertas is about to release his first full-length studio album, “Grown & Sexy Music.”
While the album itself will not be available until June 11, 2013, the second single — “Champion” — will come out early on Tuesday (April 9). The first single off the album, “Ledge of Love,” debuted last November. The song took the TV show’s relationship between Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) as its inspiration. A five-song EP called “Sex Tape” will also be released prior to the album appears, available at the actor’s website, thejonhuertas.com.

A mix of club dance tracks and R&B/pop, “Grown & Sexy Music” was co-produced and co-written by Huertas and Grammy-nominated songwriter/producer Christian Davis.

Jon Huertas plays Detective Javier Esposito on ABC’s “Castle”. But many Castle fans may be surprised to learn Jon spends much of his free time creating and performing music. He’s traveled the world singing in large auditoriums, small and sexy jazz clubs, even appearing in “The Wiz”. It all stems from his first featured singing solo, at the ripe age of six, at his catholic school’s 2nd grade Christmas show.
