On the EP, Johansson runs through five of her familiar Waits covers from the recent “Anywhere I Lay My Head” LP, a take on Franks Wild Years’ Innocent When You Dream (which does not appear anywhere on “Anywhere”), and a typically woozy spin on the Cure’s immortal Boys Don’t Cry.

04 I Wish I Was in New Orleans
05 Green Grass

A number of Oxfam’s high profile ambassadors, including actors Scarlett Johansson, Colin Firth, Kristin Davis, and Bill Nighy are calling on G8 leaders to urgently respond to global poverty challenges, starting with a boost in funds for climate change, the food crisis and development aid.
The 34th G8 Summit, which is taking place until the 9th, is a gathering of Germany, France, Britain, Italy, Japan, the United States, Canada and Russia. In a letter drafted by the Oxfam ambassadors, the group remarked “The Millennium Development Goals that were set out in 2000 were chosen because they were ambitious, but also because they were realistic and achievable. The current delays in meeting these commitments are a disgrace.”
