As first reported by andPOP, Scarlett Johansson has announced she will release her debut album, consisting mostly of Tom Waits covers, this spring.
“Anywhere I Lay My Head” will hit U.S. stores May 20, and sees the 23-year-old actress interpreting 10 Tom Wait songs and performing one original track.
The album was produced by TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek. Johansson also collaborated with Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner and Celebration’s Sean Antanaitis.
Johansson recorded the album in Louisiana over five weeks last spring.
Her previous forays into music include singing the track “Summertime” for “Unexpected Dreams,” a 2006 charity album featuring celebrities not usually known for their singing.
She also sang with the Jesus & Mary Chain at last year’s Coachella festival.
