One of the more unusual albums to be conceived in recent years, actress Scarlett Johansson’s interpretations of Tom Waits songs, will hit stores this spring.
“Anywhere I Lay My Head” will be released May 20 via Rhino Entertainment’s Atco imprint. Johansson collaborated on the album with Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner, Celebration’s Sean Antanaitis and TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek, who produced.
The track list sports 10 Waits covers and one original track, but full details have yet to be announced.
Johansson recorded the album over five weeks last spring at Dockside Studios in Maurice, La. Her prior music dalliances include singing the track “Summertime” for “Unexpected Dreams,” a 2006 charity album featuring film stars, and a surprise appearance with the Jesus & Mary Chain at last year’s Coachella festival.
