Scarlett Johansson has a type, it seems-- at least when it comes to recording music. Johansson's first album, the better-than-anyone-realized 2008 drug-pop swooner Anywhere I Lay My Head, consisted almost entirely of Tom Waits covers. And later this year, Johansson and singer/songwriter Pete Yorn will release a collaborative album reportedly inspired by Serge Gainsbourg's duets with Brigitte Bardot, according to USA Today.
So if you're a legendary songwriter with a craggy seen-it-all voice and a permanently unimpressed hangdog facial expression, you might eventually inspire a Scarlett Johansson album. Leonard Cohen-- call your manager! (Via)

Can't hear that Gainsbourg spirit yet on the first single. Listen here. (Merci JW)

4 opmerkingen:

  1. thanks on the information you write. I have always faithfully follow the latest posts from you

  2. Since the Waits covers were excellent, this is good news. Go Scarlett!

  3. Oh no, I'll have a heart attack if she gets even near Cohen's songs! ;p But I'll hope this Gainsbourg-inspired album will result into a more pleasing experience to my ears than the Waits album did... o_O

  4. You can listen to the single Relator at the album's website. If you like that sort of thing - I'm decidedly underwhelmed.
