Since his most recent TV series has concluded last June 29, 2014, David Duchovny, the star of “Californication,” is setting his sights on launching a career in music and book writing. Read on to learn more about the actor’s latest endeavor after “Californication.”

In an exclusive with Rolling Stone, Duchovny, who played the troubled novelist Hank Moody in “Californication” for seven seasons, said that he has plans of releasing his debut album sometime in 2015. The actor cited that he has been playing the guitar and writing his own music for the past few years, compiling about 12 demos for this latest project.

“I’d put it somewhere in there – if I’m lucky,” said Duchovny in the Rolling Stone interview while speaking about his songs and comparing his sound to the likes of Wilco or R.E.M.  He also expressed finding pleasure in doing music, calling this a lifesaver, which he likes doing for friends and family.

The actor, who actually has a degree in English literature, is also planning on releasing a book that’s for both kids and adults. He said that this would be similar to “Charlotte’s Web” or “Animal Farm,” which makes use of animals as people and holds very important life lessons.  While the book is not yet finished, he mentioned that he already has some ideas for the next one, which will entail a lot of research work.

Duchovny will be doing all of these side projects while preparing for his new TV series with NBC, a crime show called “Aquarius,” which takes place in the 1960s. The series has no debut date yet, but it is slated for airing in NBC’s midseason schedule.

Duchovny, who also starred in the cult series “The X Files,” which ran for nine seasons in the 1990s, is a two-time Golden Globe winner. “Aquarius” will mark his return to broadcast television, after doing cable TV with “Californication.”

And that’s the latest on David Duchovny’s music and book projects. Do check this video of him jamming with rock legend, Marilyn Manson, at a recent “Californication” cast party. For more news on your favorite TV shows, celebrities and movies, follow Movie News Guide (MNG).
