    Billboard.com is reporting that white-coiffed comedian Steve Martin, who won a Grammy for 2009's The Crow: New Songs for the Five-String Banjo, is set to record a new album in the wake of its predecessor's success. Who's waiting with baited breath?

    Martin, who also acts and writes books, and his touring group, the Steep Canyon Rangers, are planning to hit the studio in August and are eyeing an early 2011 release. "I have most of the songs," Martin said. "I have 11 songs, and I think we need 12 or 13, and I'm very happy with them." He said the record will have fewer guests and remote recording sessions this time out.

    The album will also feature all-original compositions.

    Should Martin stick to comedy and continue to be a wild and crazy guy? Or should he continue down his musical path, like John Tesh and David Hasselhoff? OK, so maybe he's not that bad. He did win a Grammy.
