Product Overview

Scarlett Johansson's inspired Atco Records debut album Anywhere I Lay My Head features her distinctive interpretations of ten songs by Tom Waits plus one original selection, "Song for Jo." Johansson co-wrote the track with TV on the Radio's David Andrew Sitek, who produced the album and lends his multi-instrumental talents throughout as well. She is also joined by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner, Sean Antanaitis from Celebration and others.

The album's title track comes from Waits' acclaimed 1985 album Rain Dogs. Johansson also selected cuts from Alice, Swordfishtrombones, Big Time, Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers & Bastards, Real Gone, Small Change and Bone Machine. Johansson spent five weeks in spring 2007 recording Anywhere I Lay My Head at Dockside Studios in Maurice, Lousiana, in the heart of Cajun country.

Filter ...eerily beautiful...a startling achievement...
Performing Songwriter ...inspired production from TV on the Radio's David Sitek and Johansson's smoky alto ensure Waits' essence isn't "lost in translation."
Rolling Stone Frankly, we're pretty impressed by Scarlett Johansson's first real foray into music...
