John Travolta to release album 'inspired by Elvis'

John Travolta is reportedly planning to release an album inspired by Elvis Presley.
The 59-year-old actor is also a keen musician with over ten records under his belt. His last was a collaboration with his Grease co-star Olivia Newton-John called This Christmas, which hit stores in 2012. It didn't set the charts alight and John is now determined to end his singing career on a high note.
He reportedly believes he could rival the likes of famed vocalist Elvis if he had the right team around him.
"He has been hitting up some of LA's best producers and songwriters for material. This is his plan to stay relevant," an insider told National Enquirer.
Further details of the plan remain unknown and at the moment no release date has been mooted.
John isn't the only star who is thinking about ways to tackle the current music scene. It's been claimed that 52-year-old Billy Ray Cyrus has recorded a hip-hop version of his country track Achy Breaky Heart in the hope it'll win him some new fans.
"Just spoke with @Billyraycyrus on the phone," Larry King tweeted last month. "He's recorded a hip hop version of 'Achy Breaky Heart.' He's excited about it and so am I! (sic)"
Billy is apparently determined to make the remix a hit and has decided to cast a group of sexy girls in the video, with auditions already being planned.
