The Daily News newspaper in the US has a supplement called TV Spotlight which featured a Q&A about Lucy's singing abilities. Check out the response below.

Q: Is it true that Lucy Lawless put out a music album?


A: Not exactly. Lucy Lawless, best known to most as the warrior princess Xena in the cleverly titled cult classic series "Xena: warrior Princess," has released a recording of a live concert she performed at L.A.'s famed Roxy Theater, and an EP (mini-album) with five tracks, three of which are just remixes of the first.

However, Lawless is certainly aware of her physical appeal, which undeniably aided in the success of her TV show (which featured her jumping around in the tightest, skimpiest battle Armour ever worn by a warrior princess). Perhaps that's why, though she's released just two audio recordings, she's released multiple live-concert DVDS, including two filmed at the aforementioned Roxy.




She also contributed a song to the 2006 CD "Unexpected Dreams: Songs From the Stars," a compilation of lullabies performed by various film and TV stars. Other contributors include Scarlett Johansson, Ewan Mcgregor and "Desperate Housewives" star Teri Hatcher.





As is the case with most actors who can sing, Lawless appeared in a Broadway run of "Grease," playing Rizzo. Her appearance earned a fair bit of press -- "Xena" was nearing its popularity peak at the time -and so this was most people's introduction to Lawless's musical bent.

But despite all this she hasn't abandoned her TV fans. Indeed, her current series, Starz's "Spartacus," has a lot in common with "Xena: warrior Princess." Both are factually loose, racy portrayals of classical eras -- with "Spartacus," she's moved forward in time from ancient Greece to slightly less-ancient Rome.

The second season of "Spartacus" premiered on Jan. 27, and the series has already received a green light for a third season.
