Johansson & Yorn To Release Duets Album

SCARLETT JOHANSSON is set for a return to the album charts as part of a new duo with singer/songwriter PETE YORN.
The actress, who hit the charts last year (08) with an album full of Tom Waits tunes, recorded tracks for Break Up in 2007 - and now Yorn plans to release the project in September (09).
The cult songwriter tells Billboard.com he hopes to recreate the kind of the working relationship between French stars Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot with the actress.
He says, "I was really into Bonnie & Clyde at the time, by Serge and Brigitte, and I thought, 'Brigitte... Scarlett! She's Brigitte!' It was a really manic thought pattern that was going on. Within 10 minutes, I was texting Scarlett: 'We have to make a record!'"
Yorn reveals he and his new partner are hoping to tour with their new album: "Hopefully we'll be able to put a couple of events together where we could perform a little bit."
