Harry Connick Jr. says he writes music while he is on movie sets

"I've written entire records on a movie set. Then when the movie's done, you go into the studio to record it. Then when you're finished that, it's time to promote the movie. Then it's time to tour. So, it all kind of works together," he says.

CLEARWATER, Fla., Sept. 4 (UPI) -- Jazz musician, actor and TV personality Harry Connick Jr. says he frequently writes songs during downtime on movie sets.

The entertainer discussed his upcoming album, as well as his work habits, during a roundtable interview with reporters for his latest film Dolphin Tale 2.

"We're just kind of putting the ideas together just recently," Connick Jr. said of starting the new record.

"Yeah, so things kind of leap frog. When I am on a movie set, sometimes that's a good time... As you know, there is a lot of downtime on a film set and you can get a lot of stuff done. In the trailer and the hotel. I've written entire records on a movie set. Then when the movie's done, you go into the studio to record it. Then when you're finished that, it's time to promote the movie. Then it's time to tour. So, it all kind of works together."

In addition to being a successful recording artist, Connick Jr. has also starred in the films Hope Floats and Memphis Belle, and served as a judge on American Idol last season.

Co-starring Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman, Dolphin Tale 2 opens nationwide Sept. 12.
