We all know Kiefer Sutherland the actor, but now it’s time to meet Kiefer Sutherland the musician. The 24 star announced Thursday that he will be releasing his debut album Down In A Hole this summer.

The 11-track collection is described as “folk-tinged” in a release, and will feature Sutherland on vocals as well as guitar. While most famous for his acting skills, Sutherland has also had a hand in the music business for a number of years. In 2002, he and singer Jude Cole founded a small record label together, called Ironworks. It was in writing and playing demos for his Ironworks artists that Sutherland began creating his own album.

“It’s the closest thing I’ve ever had to a journal or diary,” Sutherland said in a statement. “All of these songs are pulled from my own personal experiences. There is something very satisfying about being able to look back on my own life, good times and bad, and express those sentiments in music.”
