Jamie Dornan sings Paul McCartney song on Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack

By Jackie Bell

Fans of Jamie Dornan are in for even more of a treat next month when the new Fifty Shades film is released - the Co Down star also performs on the movie's soundtrack.

The official song list for Fifty Shades Freed was released on Monday and fans were delighted to see Jamie's name included among the singers.

He will be performing a cover of the Paul McCartney song Maybe I'm Amazed which is listed as a bonus track.

Vocals from Jamie were teased by the film's director James Foley last year.

He told the Daily Mirror: “He is an incredibly good singer - he sang a lot on set. He sings in (the movie), but it’s a surprise.”

The Holywood actor will return to cinema screens on February 9 in the final instalment of the Fifty Shades trilogy as billionaire Christian Grey, alongside Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele.

Other artists confirmed to be performing on the Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack include Jessie J, Sia, Liam Payne and Rita Ora.

While Jamie's vocal stylings have up until now been kept under wraps on film, he has previously performed as part of duo Sons of Jim with his friend David Alexander.

Meanwhile, the actor revealed earlier this year he had previously auditioned for Hollywood musical Rock of Ages - but nerves got the better of him.

In an interview with Variety, he said: “I had to sing Waiting for a Girl Like You. It’s nearly impossible to sing, and I’ve got quite a deep voice when I sing.

"My audition was at 10 in the morning on the Warner Bros. lot. I convinced myself it would be a good idea to have a bit of whiskey to relax my vocal cords and maybe as a bit of a confidence booster.

"Suddenly, I took a swig of Jameson and I instantly puked. So I’m standing with all these executives driving around in golf carts, as I’m vomiting on the lot. It was a bad look.

"I hadn’t been clever enough to bring mouth wash. And then I had to go in, stinking of whiskey and vomit and proceed to sing Waiting for a Girl Like You - which I couldn’t sing.

"It was the worst situation ever. Obviously, I didn’t hear anything back.”
