Ne-Yo makes movie album

Ne-Yo's new album is inspired by a film script he has written.

The 'Closer' singer has been developing a screenplay about "love, money and fame" and is trying to get a Hollywood studio to take it on, and his upcoming LP contains several songs based on the potential movie.

The R&B star said: "My new album is a series of songs inspired by the script that I wrote, but it's not a musical."

The as-yet untitled LP is set to be released in September, regardless of whether the film has been signed up to a studio.

However, Ne-Yo has other plans for the script if he can't find a taker for it.

He added in an interview with the Daily Star newspaper: "I've got a few friends in the graphic novel business, so we will storyboard it but release it as a book first."

Talking about the script, Ne-Yo explained: "The underlying question is about your moral fibre. Is love, money or fame more important to you? The movie is really me and my friends answering that question."

The 30-year-old pop star is yet to find true love himself, but hopes that will change soon.

He said: "I'm working on the love. I get approached to do things all the time for money or fame but it may go against my moral design. Sometimes self love is more important."
