Three-time Formula One (F1) world champion Lewis Hamilton previewed two tracks from his upcoming debut album in a recent interview. According to Hamilton, he has been working on his music when he is not on the racetrack and he wants to share it with his fans.

In an interview with Charlie Rose for CBS’ 60 Minutes, the 30-year-old Briton talked about his passion outside the sport that he had grown so “comfortably” with. Hamilton said that he has always loved music ever since he was a kid. He revealed that he started reading chord diagrams and learned to play a guitar when he was 13 years old.

In between races, Hamilton spends his time in his recording studio, working on his album. It is the only place where the F1 star gets to discover more of himself.

“In here, I can be me,” Hamilton told Rose. “I can be vulnerable, I can show a side of me that people don’t get to see.”

Hamilton played parts of his two songs, “J’Adore” and “Lookin’ at You,” which will be included in his upcoming debut album. He said he just has to share his passion and love of music to all the supporters who had stood by him after three world titles and 43 podium wins.

The three-time F1 world champion also talked about his long-term career goal. At 30, Hamilton hinted that he would like to get out of his comfort zone in terms of trying new things outside racing, but the fans of the British F1 star can be assured that they will see their icon in Grand Prix events. He said he would love to win more world titles before calling it a day at the age of 37.
