Megan Hilty has revealed her life has been a "whirlwind" as she geared up for the release of her debut solo album.

The singer and actress has just wrapped her second season of the TV musical series Smash and also unveiled her record, It Happens All The Time, this week.

"It's been a whirlwind!" admitted the star.

The Broadway veteran said she wanted to do "something unexpected" with her album.

It Happens All The Time began as an album comprised solely of contemporary-pop covers. But Megan explained that Columbia started sending original songs along, and things started to evolve. The result is a collection of wide-ranging genres: modern soul, 70s pop and contemporary alternative.

Megan, 31, went on: "I guess it is a break-up album, but not a cry-your-eyes-out kind of album. That's why we went with It Happens All The Time as the title. People fall in and out of love all the time."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
