Annu has found some great scoop regarding Scarlett’s upcoming album.

According to this article the album will be released October 7 in the US and in Australia next year through Warner Music:

For almost a year, she has worked on an album of Tom Waits covers to be released on October 7 in the US and in Australia next year through Warner Music.

“I’ve always been a huge fan of Tom Waits,” she says. “And I had this golden opportunity to make an album however I wanted. I see Tom Waits as being a composer of modern standards, so it seemed appropriate that I could interpret his songs. Obviously, it’s not an album where I’m trying to sound like him. That would be impossible. He writes such beautiful songs and incredible melodies, and they’re so cinematic and open-ended, so I felt it would be something that I could be inspired by.”

And if you check out Play.com, they’ve listed an album titled “Anywhere I Lay My Head” by Scarlett ‘Johanssen’ to be released March 3, 2008. For more information and how to pre-order, click here.

Thanks again for the information, Annu!

Scarlett Johansson, alongside such celebrities as Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, Mariah Carey, Drew Barrymore, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Gisele Bundchen, Jamie Dornan and Selma Blair, will appear nude in the new issue of Visionare magazine. They will all be shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott for the issue titled “Private”.

The limited edition (2,500 copies) issue will be released in early October and will cost a hefty $375.

Edit: A number of fans have kindly emailed me saying that they would be interested in participating to the costs of the magazine to get one scanned for the site. I hate to ask but I am a student and there is no way that I’d be able to afford $375 by myself. If you’d be interested in contributing to the costs of the magazine, please email me at riikka@scarlett-fan.com stating how much you’d be able to send in. If there are enough contributors, I will set up a PayPal account for the magazine.

Again, thank you so much to everyone who were kind enough to suggest this! It is much appreciated.

It stands for Influential list, where W naming the most influential people and places shaping today’s fashion and style. Instead of just featuring rich celebrities and models, the list includes doctors, lawyers, successful business women and men, environmentalists and of course fashion designers. Winners include Scarlett Johansson for Throwing Curves, Anne Hathaway for being The Anti-Lindsay, and Vera Wang for being the High-Low Queen. Here’s what they had to say about Scarlett:

I’ve updated with a set of pictures of Scarlett on the set of He’s Just Not That Into You yesterday. It looks like she was not too keen on being photographed, hence I only added a couple of shots to showcase her look.

From one movie to another – our favorite workaholic was photographed on the set of her new movie, He’s Just Not That Into You, yesterday in Los Angeles. This is actually the very first day of filming of the project. Co-star and producer Drew Barrymore was also photographed on the set and you can view photos of her over at Drew Fan. I think that Scarlett looks incredibly cute with the sunnies and the ‘sunbrella’.

I am back from my trip to Venice. As you probably heard, Scarlett Johansson did not attend the film festival. Only the directors were present to promote The Nanny Diaries. She did, however, appear on Conan O’Brien and GMA after filming additional scenes for The Other Boleyn Girl in England. I have added a lot related photos and videos for you to enjoy! Thanks to Mycah, Aloxite and everyone else for the help and contributions!

Scarlett also recently filmed a promotional clip for WYOU, Madison’s non-profit community access television station. I’ve also added its caps and the video.

Scarlett Johansson really made an impression on music video director Samuel Bayer during the making of Justin Timberlake’s “What Goes Around…Comes Around” mini-movie — so much so that the two will team up again later this year.

“Scarlett is one of the sexiest actresses around,” Bayer told MTV News. “And she can just become her characters. Look at what she did during the Corvette scene, which a lot of people won’t catch. She was shooting that on a green screen, and right before we were rolling, she was laughing. We start, and she’s crying. It was just unbelievable. It’s stuff like that which makes you know someone’s a star.”

So it was a no-brainer for Bayer that when Johansson mentioned her next project was hunting for a director, and she’d like to work with him again, to come aboard. “It’s called Brilliance and it’s about diamond thieves, and we start shooting this winter,” Bayer said. “So many things came together in all the right ways. It really was a case of ‘what goes around, comes around.’ In a good way.”
