Hause, 24, is a promising R&B artist and rapper in his spare time and is putting together his debut album under his stage name Korts.
He releases Worth It through streaming platform Spotify on Friday — and will give every penny to the NHS.
Hause said: “With this extra time most of us have and the situation we currently find ourselves in, I believe it is an ideal time to give something back and help support the real heroes that are NHS staff.
Girl are you worth it
Tell me your purpose
Would you still love me if I was worthless
Buy you a new wardrobe, dresses and purses
But you gotta show me that you were with it
Girl you know that I can give you everything
Worth It, by Korts
“I will be releasing Worth It and will be donating all the proceeds to our amazing NHS who are doing a truly remarkable service in these extremely difficult times. Hope you enjoy it.”
Hause was a YouTube hit in 2017 when he featured with fellow players Demarai Gray of Leicester and Arsenal’s Ainsley Maitland-Niles on a video for the song Cheques with trip-hop group Alpha.
He added: “Music has been a passion of mine for many years. It is something I do to relax when I am away from my first love, football.”

Former Wolves ace Hause is one of the Prem stars who have clubbed together to hand out more than £4million to the NHS through the Players- Together fund.

Payments from the PlayersTogether fund began to reach hospitals across the country over the past week.
