Scarlett Johansson’s Tom Waits Album

I’ve been crazy busy at the office the last couple of weeks and as a result have had a ton of things I wanted to put up on the blog but just haven’t been able to get to. One real quick thing is Scarlett Johansson’s new album Anywhere I Lay My Head which is a compilation of Tom Waits songs.

David Bowie also lends the actress a hand with a couple of the songs on the album that is due out on May 20th. Unfortunately Scarlett is getting some mixed reviews on her vocals but tons of kudos for surrounding herself with some really great artists.

For now, you can check out the video for Falling Down here and make your own judgment:

If you’re still interested, the album has an official website where you can listen to all the songs (h/t to brooklyn vegan).

  1. Scarlett Johansson sings?? Gotta say I’m not a big fan based on that video. And for a mediocre singer to cover Tom Waits is just bordering on blasphemous.

  2. She sounds a little to produced for me…
