Yes, you read that right.

WikiLeaks' founder Julian Assange has his eyes set on his next career move: breaking into...the music industry.

The political activist met with Puerto Rican René Pérez Joglar, member of the group Calle 13, while in London.

The two apparently met at the Ecuadorean embassy in London, where Assange has been living for the last year after he was granted asylum by the Latin American country.

Joglar announced on Twitter that he will join Assange for a live songwriting session today. The collaboration is said to address "media manipulation, freedom of expression & social media empowerment."

The singer asked fans to tweet using the hashtag "JulianAssangeCalle13" and said, "We're writing down all your ideas and later we will manipulate them like the media does to us."

We wonder what kind of music these two will end of creating—and whether the music will end up getting leaked.
