Scarlett Johansson Still Trying That Whole “Being A Singer” Thing

Scarlett Johansson’s three-year-old collaboration with Pete Yorn, Break Up, is being released on Sept. 9. Judging by the song streaming from the album’s official site, ScarJo’s voice has been heavily manipulated into something that can actually convey emotion–I’m going to guess that is thanks to Yorn’s tinkering with levels. (Perhaps that explains the delay between recording and release in part?) Also, the song seems a little bit more She & Him than Gainsbourg et Bardot to these ears, mainly because it’s so damn peppy.
