Kylie Minogue sampled ‘Bonnie And Clyde’ on her 2007 track ‘Sensitized’.
In 2008 Johansson released her debut album, ‘Anywhere I Lay My Head’, which was mostly made up of Tom Waits songs. In 2009 she released ‘Break Up’, a collaborative album with Pete Yorn.

The dance duo have teamed up with the Lost In Translation star for the track ‘Summertime’, which features as the main song in Mexican movie Days Of Grace. Johansson also recently recorded the track ‘One Whole Hour’ for a documentary on autism entitled Wretches & Jabberers.
