Scarlett Johansson
Scarlett Johansson unveiled her first album, "Anywhere I Lay My Head" in NYC in front of journalists and revealed the details.


New details on Scarlett Johansson's debut album have been unveiled as the actress turned singer showcased it in front of journalists on Tuesday, February 12 at New York's Joe's Pub. "Anywhere I lay My Head", the title to the album, contains 10 Tom Waits covers that include David Bowie in two of the tracks and an original material titled "Song for Jo".

Bowie, who Johansson met during a party just before embarking on the project, contributes his vocal in the songs "Falling Down" and "Fannin' Street". Both songs also receive assistance from Yeah Yeah Yeahs' guitarist Nick Zinner and members of band Celebration. Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio who takes the major production, revealed that the sound will generally be "cough medicine/Tinker Bell", as quoted by Billboard.com.

Johansson said that she had sent a copy of the project to Waits while it was still raw. "I sent him some of the early, early recordings, and he said, 'Go ahead,'" Johansson unveiled. "I've heard he's very pleased." She also admitted that the project was initially meant for a standard album but she changed it to Waits cover because "his voice is so distinctive".

When asked of any plan to go out there in promotion of the album, Johansson said that there has been no such plan but there may be a chance to get everybody together in a festival in the future. "It would be a missed opportunity not to," she added.
