Robert Pattinson fans, listen up: your favorite vampire is reportedly poised to join the ranks of actors-turned-musicians and record an album "imminently," according to two sources who spoke to Us Weekly.

"Rob has been kicking a few original songs around for a long time, but his schedule didn't allow it," a source told the magazine. Pattinson does have some credentials already: he's recorded two songs, "Never Think" (which he co-wrote with friend Sam Bradley) and "Let Me Sign" for the original "Twilight" soundtrack.

But unlike previous chart-toppers by actors ("She's Like the Wind," anyone?), Pattinson isn't planning to create something poppy that you can sing along to. "The album Rob will make will be guitar-based and drums, very organic-sounding, nothing pop," a second source told Us. "Like stripped-down Ray LaMontagne meets Van Morrison."
