Scarlett Johansson's Serge Gainsbourg cover unveiled – listen
The actress and Lulu Gainsbourg have teamed up on a version of 'Bonnie & Clyde'
Scarlett Johansson's version of Serge Gainsbourg's 1968 song 'Bonnie & Clyde' has been posted online.
Johansson teamed up with Gainsbourg's son Lulu Gainsbourg on the release, taking on the part made famous by actress Brigitte Bardot. However, the new version of the track sees her singing in English rather than French.

The track is taken from the forthcoming album 'From Gainsbourg To Lulu', which will be released on October 30 in the US, and sees Lulu covering a host of his late father's songs accompanied by an all-star cast that includes Johnny Depp, Rufus Wainwright and Iggy Pop.
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.
Last year Massive Attack recorded a new song with Johansson. The dance duo teamed up with the Lost In Translation star for the track 'Summertime', which featured as the main song in Mexican movie Days Of Grace. The actress also recorded a song called 'One Whole Hour' for a documentary on autism entitled Wretches & Jabberers.
