Jon Huertas doesn’t just play the cute and (more or less) single cop, Detective Javier Esposito on ABC’s “Castle.” As it turns out, the man is a singer as well. And Huertas is about to release his first full-length studio album, “Grown & Sexy Music.”

While the album itself will not be available until June 11, 2013, the second single — “Champion” — will come out early on Tuesday (April 9). The first single off the album, “Ledge of Love,” debuted last November. The song took the TV show’s relationship between Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) as its inspiration. A five-song EP called “Sex Tape” will also be released prior to the album appears, available at the actor’s website,

This isn’t Huertas’ first foray into the music world. His first single, the not-exactly-safe-for-work “Sex Is the Word” was first released in June, 2011. The video for the song (inspired by “Grease”) features some definite in-the-bed adult content.

What does the actor/singer himself have to say about all of this? “I’m constantly looking for inspiration and fresh ideas for my music,” Huertas said in the official press release for the album. “I worked with an incredible team of people and I feel like we got it right with this album. It’s awesome that my fans finally get to see the hard work.”
