Scarlett Johansson sings on new Serge Gainsbourg tribute album – video
Hollywood actress and sometime singer Scarlett Johansson has recorded Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot’s 1968 song 'Bonnie And Clyde' with Gainsbourg's son Lulu for a new tribute album.

You can listen to part of the song and watch the accompanying video by scrolling down.

The album, 'From Gainsbourg To Lulu', will be released in November, and sees Lulu covering a host of his late father’s songs. The new version of ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ sees Johansson singing and speaking Bardot's lines in English, while Lulu sings Serge’s lyrics in French. 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.

Massive Attack recently recorded a new song with Johansson. 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.
