Scarlett Johansson’s Sophomore Album In The Works

Despite a lukewarm critical reception to her debut album, Scarlett Johansson is not giving up on that whole music career thing quite yet.

Its been announced that Johansson has recorded a sophomore album titled “Break Up” with musician Pete Yorn. The album was recorded in 2006 prior to her debut LP of Tom Waits covers “Anywhere I Lay My Head” and is slated for a September release.

It is said to be inspired by Serge Gainsbourg’s 1960s recordings with Brigitte Bardot and according to USA Today, Johansson recorded her vocals parts in just two afternoon sessions.

You can listen to snippets of the album here then let us know whether Scar Jo’s raspy voice should stick to delivering lines or if she does indeed posses the vocal chops to forge a music career. On first listens we’ll go with the former. Sorry Scar Jo you know we love you but seriously, we haven’t been this underwhelmed since The Other Boleyn Girl and that had Natalie Portman.
