Scarlett Johansson Cover of Serge Gainsbourg Song Hits Web (Audio) – The Hollywood Reporter
Actress and singer Scarlett johansson has a weakness for French singer Serge Gainsbourg.
The Avengers the star was requested by the son of the deceased legend Lulu Gainsbourg duet with him on perhaps the iconic ’60s pop star’s best-known track, “Bonnie & Clyde,” and the track’s audio has just been released on the internet.
The song is part of an upcoming Gainsbourg tribute album, From Lulu to Gainsbourg, which would include names such as Vanessa Paradis, Iggy Pop, Marianne Faithful and Rufus wainwright in addition to the offerings of the offspring of Gainsbourg Lulu and Charlotte Gainsbourg.
Brigitte Bardot sang on the original 1968 version of “Bonnie & Clyde” with Serge Gainsbourg, who died 20 years ago.
Johansson, of course, is no stranger to the music business. In 2008, she released Everywhere I lay my head an album of Tom is waiting blankets, and in 2009, she covered “Last Goodbye” by Jeff Buckley, which appeared on the film’s soundtrack. He’s just not very interested. She also recorded with the singer-songwriter Pete Yorn.
Most recently, Johansson sang “One Whole Hour” for the soundtrack of the documentary film. Miserable and jabbers.
