Washington (ANI): Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson is set to return to music charts with her new album in collaboration with singer/songwriter Pete Yorn. The 24-year-old actress hit the charts last year (08) with an album full of Tom Waits tunes.
She had recorded tracks for Break Up in 2007 - and now Yorn plans to release the project in September (09). Yorn hopes to recreate the kind of the working relationship between French stars Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot with the actress.
"I was really into Bonnie & Clyde at the time, by Serge and Brigitte, and I thought, 'Brigitte... Scarlett! She's Brigitte!' It was a really manic thought pattern that was going on. Within 10 minutes, I was texting Scarlett: We have to make a record!" Contactmusic quoted him as telling Billboard.com.
Yorn reveals he and his new partner are hoping to tour with their new album. "Hopefully we'll be able to put a couple of events together where we could perform a little bit," he added.
