She's covering Fawn? Isn't that an instrumental?

I really like Scarlett Johansson, so dont get me wrong. But does anyone else worry that this could be potentially terrible? Or maybe I'm just an overprotective fan...

im with em...

/has scarlet done any other vocal work? i'd like to hear it before i rush out and examine this album...the bowie support and alledged Waits approval makes me atleast hopeful.

According to the french magazine Les Inrockuptibles, Johansson's album is "magical" and extremely surprising. Her voice is "between Nico and Marianne Faithfull", and the music is compared to a tornado in slow motion with "surnatural gospel choirs", rusty banjos and surf guitars. Closer to David Lynch than Tom Waits, they say, but they also mention Waits heard demos and gave his blessing.
