Scarlett Johansson "Summertime" (ft. Massive Attack's 3D)
Published Apr 11, 2012Scarlett Johansson hasn't released an album since her 2009 collaboration with Pete Yorn, but the Hollywood star has kept up her musical career with occasional one-off tracks. Her latest song is a collaboration with 3D of trip-hop vets Massive Attack, which comes from the soundtrack for the film Days of Grace.
The pair teamed up for a cover of "Summertime" by George Gershwin. They gave it an extremely creepy makeover, as eerie drones give way to hauntingly distant vocals and it eventually turns into a skulking, fuzz-laden rock song.
This is a lot more unsettling than Johannson's previous version of "Summertime," which appeared on the 2006 album Unexpected Dreams - Songs from the Stars. (It's worth noting that this appears to be a complete re-recording, rather than a remix, since it's in a different key.)
Days of Grace is set to arrive in theatres on June 13. The soundtrack is now available digitally via Lakeshore Records.
UPDATE: The track has now been removed but you can check out some preview clips from the soundtrack here.
