I came across this report today, which excited me:
"Scarlett Johansson will release her debut album, "Anywhere I Lay My Head," on May 20. The 23-year-old Nanny Diaries star spent five weeks recording 10 covers of Tom Waits songs and one original track in Louisiana last spring. She has displayed her vocal talents previously, singing The Pretenders's "Brass in Pocket" in Lost In Translation and performing on stage with Jesus and Mary Chain last April at the Coachella Music Festival. Johansson collaborated on the album with producer David Sitek, Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zimmer, and Celebration organist/guitarist Sean Atanaitis. "
Being that I'm a serious fan of both Scarlett J. and Tom Waits, the idea of this upcoming release is very intruiging to me. In fact, before my tired head hit the satin pillowcase last night, I watched Lost In Translation for the millionth time. It's one of my favourite movies ever. Mission accomplished too, because I had sweet dreams of travel in Japan instead of anxiety ridden dreams about work. Nevermind the fact that I am at the office right this minute.
