So, Scarlett Johansson has an all-girl band that just did an amazing cover for a great cause and this is a lot of awesomeness to process
Scarlett Johansson is not only a spectacular actress, but she has an extremely in-demand voice. Between her depictions of Kaa in The Jungle Book and the haunting depiction of the AI in Her, she has some serious talent in those famous vocal chords.
And now she’s putting that vocal talent to another use by covering a New Order track along with her all-girl band, Sugar For Sugar.
According to People, Scarlett’s group covered the song “Bizarre Love Triangle” as part of a charity compilation album called The Time Is Now that will be released October 7. The money raised will help amfAR, the American Foundation for Aids Research.
Despite the fact that the full 14-track album won’t be coming out for a couple more weeks, you can already listen to ScarJo and her band’s awesome take on the song online.
This song seriously rocks out and gives a really modern, unique spin on the ’80s classic. You can hear the mega-talented Scarlett’s voice in a totally new way and we are loving everything about it.
Some other collaborators on the record include DNCE, Aloe Blacc, and Marian Hill. All the performers perform their own rendition of ’80s classic hits, which makes The Time Is Now sound like it’s going to be totally tubular and we are into it.
If you can’t wait until October 7 to get your hands on this album (and we don’t blame you), you can pre-order it online now. In doing so, you’ll know you’re not only helping out a great cause, but getting something really special in return. Everybody wins!
