    David praises Scarlett's 'mystical' singing

    By Super Admin

    Washington (ANI): Rocker David Bowie has showered actress Scarlett Johansson with praise prior to the release of her debut album, insisting that her performance is "mystical." The rock legend added backing vocals to two tracks on Anywhere I Lay My Head Falling Down and Fannin Street.

    Writing on his official website, Bowie has dismissed media criticism of the Lost in Translation starlet's attempts to re-record songs by an artist as respected as Waits.

    "The songs are great, really good Tom Waits stuff, and Scarlett's performances are mystical and twice cool," Contactmusic quoted Bowie, as saying. "She creates a mood that could have been summoned by someone like Margery Latimer or Jeanette Winterson," he added.

    Bowie, who sings on Falling Down and Fannin' Street, played down his contributions to the album, saying that his involvement was fairly minimal. "I've seen the press on this and I suppose the record company wanted to spin my involvement a little more than it actually warrants. All I contribute are these oo's and ah's on a couple of tracks," he said.
