Hollywood star Jeff Goldblum is to release a jazz album after signing his first record deal at the age of 65 - and Imelda May will feature as a guest singer.

The Jurassic Park/Jurassic World actor signed with Universal's Decca Records after the label's bosses spotted his talent when he accompanied jazz singer Gregory Porter on the Graham Norton Show last year.

Goldblum - who returns as chaos theorist Ian Malcolm in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - revealed to RTÉ Entertainment's John Byrne that the Dublin singer would feature on his upcoming album.

"I just did this jazz record and guess who sang guest-singing on it? It was Imelda May," he said. "She was so great. Just great."

Goldblum has been playing music since he was a child, entertaining in cocktail lounges in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, from the age of 15. In addition to appearing in 122 films and TV series, he has been playing piano with the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra in Los Angeles and New York since the 1990s.

Our full interview with Jeff Goldblum will follow over the coming days, as well as interviews with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom stars Chris Pratt and Dallas Bryce Howard, writer/producer Colin Trevorrow and director JA Bayona.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will be released nationwide on June 6.
