Scarlett Johansson :: Anywhere I Lay My Head

As if starring in three films this year and getting engaged to hottie actor Ryan Reynolds wasn’t enough to keep Scarlett busy, she decided to take on the task of recording her first album too. Anywhere I Lay My Head is made up of Tom Waits covers where Scarlett shows off a suprisingly deep, anti-pop voice. This record is totally different than the actress turned singer fare we’ve heard from Lindsay, Paris, or any of the Nickelodeon/Disney crew because it isn’t over-produced bubble gum at all. It’s actually not even a ‘look at me I can sing’ project, since the ensemble band really steals the show and supports Scarlett’s satisfactory, if not awe-inspiring vocals. The truth is that if we didn’t already know ScarJo as an actress, this would be a solid folk debut for an upcoming artist.

Fun Facts

  • The album was produced by Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio.
  • iTunes offers two album bonus tracks.
  • The album is entirely covers of Tom Waits songs, except for one original song called Song for Jo.
  • Scarlett has been nominated for four Golden Globes.
  • Two of the tracks feature David Bowie on back-up vocals
  • Hot Tracks

    Clique Girlz :: Clique Girlz EP

    The Clique Girlz, sisters Paris Monroe, Destinee Monroe, and Ariel Moore, formed a group in 2003 before being signed to Intescope Records last year. Since then they’ve sung the Star-Spangled Banner for MLB and NFL games, and opened for The Backstreet Boys, Billy Ray Cyrus and The Jonas Brothers. Later in 2008 they’ll be releasing their first album, but until then fans can check out this EP of three songs. All of the songs are well produced Pop tracks with hit potential and it’s really hard to believe that the girls are only 13, 13, and 12 when they’re spitting out mature pop vocals that rival anything on American Idol or Girlicious. This EP is a tasty little appetizer while fans patiently wait for the main course.

    Fun Facts

  • Then I Woke Up and The Difference In Me, are originally Diana DeGarmo songs.
  • The Clique Girlz will record a song for the upcoming The Clique Movie, based on one of Lisa Harrison’s books.
  • In the group Paris is the princess, Destinee the rocker, and Ariel the sweetheart.
  • Because of those characterizations, the group symbols are the crown, star, and heart.
  • Hot Track

    Then I Woke Up.
