This spring, actress Scarlett Johannson will debut her singing career with an album featuring 10 Tom Waits songs from Anywhere I Lay My Head and one original tune. The album will feature collaborations with Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Dave Sitek of TV On The Radio. The album is slated for a May 20th release on Rhino Records’ imprint Atco.
As a rule I’m never a fan of actors thinking they can become singers and vice versa. ScarJo now joins the likes of Lindsay Lohan, Hillary Duff, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Tatiana Ali, Alyssa Milano, and Gwenyth Paltrow. Woof.
She’ll no doubt be embraced by hipsters and indie kids, though. ScarJo is, after all, a muse of Woody Allen’s and an indie darling. And with guest rockers Nick Zinner and Dave Sitek, there will at the very least be a raging curiosity. Should the good people at Rhino/Atco will it, PopWreck(oning) would love to review the forthcoming CD.
