Scarlett Johansson has had quite an active year. She starred in a couple of movies, married actor Ryan Reynolds and even indulged her inner rock star by releasing an album. But don’t think that Johansson is done with the music business just yet, because she has plans for a follow-up.

Back in the spring, Johansson released a Tom Waits cover album, “Anywhere I Lay My Head”, and she promises it isn’t her last. “I would love to do another album,” she told MTV News while promoting The Spirit, the new film based on Will Eisner’s comic book.

She also revealed that this time around, she’d like to tackle some original material, perhaps inspired by married life — which she’s not a fan of talking about in interviews. But she said she’s going to have to wait, since she already has such a busy schedule.

“I don’t think I’d do covers, so it’d be a project that I have to dedicate myself to,” she said. “I feel like that’s something for the future.”

But if she had to do covers? “If I had to, Leonard Cohen, maybe,” she said.

This isn’t the first time the actress has referenced the iconic singer. Back in February, Johansson shared her affinity for Cohen with MTV News. “Hmm … that’s a tough question,” she said when asked who she’d like to work with next. “Leonard Cohen?”
