    Default David Bowie sings on Scarlett Johansson's album

    BBC News

    David Bowie has sung on two tracks on actress Scarlett Johansson's debut album, a tribute to singer Tom Waits.

    Bowie appears on two covers - Falling Down and Fannin' Street - on Anywhere I Lay My Head, released on 20 May.

    Johansson, 23, said she decided to sing versions of Waits' songs because "his melodies are so beautiful and his voice is so distinct".

    "I sent him some of the early, early recordings, and he said: 'Go ahead,'" she told reporters in New York.

    "I've heard he's very pleased," she added. Alongside the 10 cover versions, the album also features one original composition called Song for Jo.

    According to Billboard magazine, Johansson met Bowie at a party shortly before she began recording and asked him to contribute.

    At present she has no plans to perform live, although the actress said it would be "a missed opportunity not to" at some point.

    She will be at the Berlin Film Festival shortly for the premiere of The Other Boleyn Girl, a historical drama in which she plays Anne Boleyn's sister.

    From what I've read about this album, she does Tom Waits pretty well. Not an easy feat. I'd hate to think David Bowie would lend his talent to some "poptart". Scarjo must be multitalented because she is a good actress - who knew she could sing too!

    Well I don't think David Bowie would sing with her if she was terrible. Maybe she used her 'charms'.

    Actually, I've just learned that apparently David is whoring himself out these days. He's done several suspect collaborations, and also has one coming out with Arcade Fire this year as well as ScarHo.

    a collaboration with the arcade fire's pretty cool though, might give the old fart some credibility back. they already performed together before and the arcade fire always named him as one of their leading influences.
    it's not like he's going to be shaking his booty with beyoncitis or something.

    this isn't the worst thing david has done, by far.
    don't get me wrong, i love everything the man did until he turned cheesy in the 80s but he's been a total sell-out whore since then.

    makes me think of Sickboy's speech in Trainspotting

    Sickboy: Well, at one time, you've got it, and then you lose it, and it's gone forever. All walks of life: George Best, for example. Had it, lost it. Or David Bowie, or Lou Reed...

    Renton: Some of his solo stuff's not bad.

    Sick Boy: No, it's not bad, but it's not great either. And in your heart you kind of know that although it sounds all right, it's actually just shite.



    All of God's children are not beautiful. Most of God's children are, in fact, barely presentable.

    Arcade Fire is overdone and hackneyed. Downgrade.

    Not sure why but am completely enamored of her!
