I don't really care if she goes or not but Id like to get that album. I wish she would have done Invitation to the Blues alongside David Bowie.

Frankly, Scarlett, we do give a damn. Anywhere I Lay My Head, the previously reported debut album from screen thespian Scarlett Johansson, arrives May 20 on Atco/Rhino.

It's an album comprised almost entirely of Tom Waits covers, with one ScarJo original, "Song for Jo", as its centerpiece. And now we know just which Waits numbers get the Johansson touch: "I Don't Want to Grow Up", "Town With No Cheer", and "No One Knows I'm Gone" are among the tunes by the gravel-voiced one that make up the rather odd Anywhere tracklist, reported on Billboard.com yesterday evening.

We already knew Dave Sitek produced and members of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Celebration, and Stars Like Fleas play on it, but here's the kicker: a pair of tracks ("Falling Down" and "Fannin' Street") feature guest vocals from none other than David Bowie! That's right: the other girl from Ghost World has recorded Tom Waits covers with David Bowie. Minds = blown.

As far as the covers themselves, "I Don't Want to Grow Up" will probably turn some heads. The Billboard.com report describes the track as having "drum machine beats straight out of a New Order song." Oh boy.

Waits gave the project his blessing, however. "I sent him some of the early, early recordings," Johansson told journalists at a press conference yesterday, "and he said, 'Go ahead.'

"I've heard he's very pleased."

While Johansson has no immediate plans to tour the Anywhere material, she is considering the possibility of "getting everybody together" for a festival appearance.

Very nearly ruined the JAMC show. OK, not really, but she nearly ruined one song.

Interesting. I love the Ramones version.

Still, I'm worried about that whole "she doesn't seem to sing very well" part.

next year perhaps? i think it would be a bit weird but if she can pull it off, good on her


Pitchfork: Do you think you might tour?

SJ: I don't think I'd tour with it, because it's weird to tour with a compilation of other peoples' songs. But it would be cool to play a couple of shows or maybe play at a festival or something. Hopefully my crippling anxiety and stage fright can be overcome! It would be a shame to not play it out. It's got such a big sound, it would be great to hear it in a large venue.

I'm going to find whoever though letting this woman record any album whatsoever was a good idea and stab them with a superAIDS needle in the tonsils.

Scarlett performing "Falling Down" on AOL Music (http://music.aol.com/video/falling-down-sessions/scarlett-johansson/2124745)

Interesting. Needs work.

Here's the music video with David Bowie on background vocals. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmzUOvgNYVw)
