Scarlett Johansson Unveils her Cover of Serge Gainsbourg
She is not just an actress. Scarlet Johansson has just unveiled her Serge Gainsbourg cover. You can listen to it by clicking the link at the end of this article. She teamed up with Lulu Gainsbourg for the unusual project as they sang ‘Bonnie & Clyde’. The song was first done in 1968 but now we have an online version that involves one of the most bankable actresses out there.

The new track has been extracted from the forthcoming album titled ‘From Gainsbourg to Lulu’. It is going to be released in the USA on the 30th of October this year. Lulu will be covering a host of his late father’s song. The all-star cast for the set includes Rufus Wainwright, Johnny Depp and Iggy Pop.

Here is a sample of her considerable talents:
