Scarlett Johansson has said she plans to write an album of original songs for the follow-up to her 2008 debut album ‘Anywhere I Lay My Head’.
All but one of the tracks on the actress’ first record were covers of Tom Waits‘ songs. Speaking to MTV News, Johansson confirmed that she would “love” to record another album, this time of original compositions.
“I don’t think I’d do covers, so it’d be a project that I have to dedicate myself to,” she said. “I feel like that’s something for the future.”
When asked who she would chose if she was forced to do another album of covers, Johansson said: “If I had to, Leonard Cohen, maybe.”
