Will Smith has teased his music return as "magnificent".

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star, Hollywood actor, rapper and all-round entertainer is soon set to release his new music after what has been a 10-year hiatus.

On Sunday (1 November), Will cut a dapper figure as he collected the Hollywood Actor gong at the Hollywood Film Awards for his work in upcoming football drama, Concussion.

Aside from his acting, the 47-year-old is working on his new material, which is expected to be coming very soon.

Will told the Associated Press: "It's such a new exploration for me. The most fun that I have. There's nothing that compares to being on the stage with a hit record. So you know I've been performing a little bit with (DJ Jazzy) Jeff.

"We've been sneaking out and going to places and working out a little bit. So I think it's going to be magnificent."

It was revealed last month that Will and his sidekick DJ Jazzy Jeff would be going on a world tour next year.

Will had told Zane Lowe on the Beats 1 radio show that he has recorded 30 new songs, and while admitting he was "terrified" at the prospect of returning to music, he said a tour with Jazzy was "pretty certain".
