Scarlett Johansson album, Anywhere I Lay My Head

18 May 2008 / in Blog, Culture, Media, Music, Posts, The Arts

This is the new Scarlett Johansson album, Anywhere I Lay My Head. The album consists of 10 Tom Waits covers and 1 original song, and has created quite a buzz, not only because of the performer, with Scarlett arguably being the most beautiful woman in Hollywood but because of the content, as Tom Waits songs are pretty revered among some crowds. The project has interested me, and I’m actually going to listen to this almost as soon as I post it.

You’ve heard what Scarlett has to say about covering Tom Waits, you’ve read what Bowie has to say about her covering Tom Waits, shit you’ve even seen what Tom Waits has to say about ScarJo covering Tom Waits. NOW IT’S TIME TO HEAR HER COVER TOM WAITS.

The record’s called Anywhere I Lay My Head, and the first cover to convert its way into internet friendly streamability is the title track. As Sitek told us on a snowy night a few months back, he was going for a “cough syrup/Tinkerbell” vibe throughout. That night we complained that Sitek’s dense production tended to bury her vocal — drowning Tinker Bell in the cough syrup, to fuck with the metaphor. We walked out thinking it was a swell sounding Sitek album, and Scarlett was guesting. This is just the first helping, but see how the syrup suits you.
