While there may not be too much news in regards to Poldark season 4 itself out today, we do think that there is something exciting in regards to star Eleanor Tomlinson. The actress, who plays the part of Demelza on the BBC series, is going to be releasing her folk album entitled Tales from Home via Sony Music Masterworks on May 18. The collection, per York Press, includes several traditional Irish and Scottish folk songs to go along with covers like Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me” and one of our favorite songs in Simon & Garfunkel’s “Homeward Bound.”
There is a pretty clear connection between this album and Tomlinson’s singing career, largely in that without Poldark we’re not altogether sure we would even know about some of her vocal talents. She has performed in the past on the series as her character, most notably near the end of season 3. This enthusiasm is one of the things that led to this album’s release.
There is also potentially something worth pointing out about the release date if you were to read between the lines. Most indications are at present that Poldark season 4 is going to premiere at early summer, and it makes the most sense for Tomlinson to release her album at roughly the same time. While we cannot say that Poldark will return to British television at around May 18, it probably will be at some point around this, if a little later, as a means to use the show in order to promote the album. This is something that any smart executive within the British music industry would try to pull off.
In general, it’s just exciting to see some of Tomlinson’s other pursuits, especially in the midst of what is an extremely busy schedule for her. Remember that the actress is also appearing on the upcoming adaptation of War of the Worlds, which you can read a little bit more about by heading over to the link here.
