VANCOUVER — Troubled actor Randy Quaid is working on his first full-length album and is set to release a first single about the so-called “star whackers.”
Maximum Music Group says it will release the album later this year but is making two singles available for digital download on May 3.
They include a rock number called Star Whackers, which has already made the rounds on YouTube after Quaid performed it last month at a Vancouver club.
The other track is billed as a “lovers’ lament” called Will We Be Together Then, which was written by Quaid and his wife Evi.
Quaid and his backup band, The Fugitives, showed up at the Commodore Ballroom last month to debut the two songs in his first public gig since being granted permanent residency status in Canada.
The couple fled to Canada claiming “star whackers” from Hollywood were out to get them. They were arrested in Vancouver last October on a warrant issued in Santa Barbara, Calif., where they face charges of felony vandalism.
Maximum Music Group said Thursday in a release that Quaid recorded “a series of songs that will eventually become his first full-length album.”
Evi Quaid says she has applied to sponsor Randy for citizenship after receiving her Canadian citizenship in February. Her father was born in Canada.
The Quaids were arrested last September in California while living in the guest house of a home they formerly owned.
They were charged with felony vandalism after being accused of causing more than $5,000 in damage to the property.
