As a duets album, it’s a non-starter, but Johansson truly shines.Singer-songwriter Pete Yorn probably didn't foresee Scarlett Johansson's marriage to Ryan Reynolds when he first approached her about a duets album in 2006.At that point, her love for Tom Waits wasn't yet mocked or even made public, and she was just another curvy starlet looking to break into the music biz.Together, Yorn (who has wooed the likes of Winona Ryder and Minnie Driver) and Johansson put down nine duets they kept to themselves until now.With all that's happened since—a wedding and an album sales stinker—the respected crooner and the actress are releasing on Sept.
8."I was having a strange week of insomnia and when I finally passed out, it came to me in a dream," Yorn says in a statement.
"I woke up and the whole thing was in my head, fully formed.""It sounded like an interesting little adventure," she explains in the press release.
"The idea of two people vocalizing their relationship through duets…I always thought of it as just a small project between friends…it perfectly captured where I was in my life at the time.""Relator," the first track on the "hook-filled song cycle about a tempestuous relationship," can be heard here now.
A.-based singer-songwriter Pete Yorn woke up in a fever dream, desperate to make an album of duets like Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot did in Paris back in the '60s.
As luck would have it, the shaggy bastard happened to have Scarlett Johansson's phone number.
After beckoning his muse to a garage studio and recording an album they called , Yorn put the nine-track record away, and they both turned to other projects.
