I have not been quiet about my love for Scarlett Johansson's first album Anywhere I Lay My Head. I still listen to it start-to-end a lot (in fact I'm listening to it right now! Freaky...) and mind it's mystique and enchanting spell has yet to subside with me. I never did get around to doing a top albums of 2008 feature but it would have ranked #3 if that means anything to you.
So I'm one of probably only a small selection of people who is legitimately excited by the prospect of a new album by ScarJo (are people still calling her that?) This time she is working with Pete York on an album called Break Up. The first single can be heard over here and, yes, I like it quite a bit. The album and sing are credited as Pete York & Scarlett Johansson and the track is a duet so fans of Yorn will want to check it out also. The album is released in August.
