Kate Hudson Covers Stone Temple Pilots’ “Vaseline” Ahead of Debut Album: Watch

Actress Kate Hudson is making a foray into music with her upcoming debut album, Glorious, set to arrive on May 17th. While promoting the effort, she performed a cover of the Stone Temple Pilots classic “Vaseline” and other songs on The Howard Stern Show.

Hudson’s not a stranger to the music world, having starred in Almost Famous back in 2000 and having been married to Black Crowes singer Chris Robinson and engaged to Muse frontman Matt Bellamy. Her current boyfriend, Danny Fujikawa, is a musician who fronted the band Chief and started the label Lightwave Records.

On The Howard Stern Show, Hudson covered STP’s “Vaseline” and the ‘Til Tuesday hit “Voices Carry,” and sang her original song “Gonna Find Out.” Hudson gave a solid performance of both cover tunes, displaying a natural rock voice that suited each song well.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Hudson said that her album is a long time coming. “People in the industry would say, ‘Let’s make a record,’” she revealed. “‘Let’s do this. Let’s do that.’ And I always felt not ready. I don’t know why that was my response. Something was stopping me, and I wasn’t reflective enough at the time to really think about it — until I got older, and I was like, ‘Why am I so hesitant with something I love more than anything?’”

Fujikawa and acclaimed songwriter Linda Perry were among the artists who helped Hudson craft the songs on the album. Comparing the process to acting, Hudson remarked, “It’s the moments when you hit a scene with someone and everything goes away and it feels so good. It feels completely present. That’s the same thing for me writing music. You’re so present in it. [The title track] ‘Glorious’ was just the best. It was better than sex.”
