Do you automatically get street cred from hanging out with David Bowie?

I was vaguely aware that Scarlet Johansson was putting out an album. What I was not aware of is that it is a Tom Waits cover album. (????????)

She is so weird.

ANYWAYS... David Bowie sings backup vocals (backup vocals???) on a few of the songs, and the whole darn thing was produced by David Andrew Sitek of TV on the Radio. All of these factors kind of make me want to like it. Because I like all of these things.

Listen to it here. What do you think?

*pausing while you listen*

Okay. Seriously. Does she kind of sound like a man? Is that a good thing or a bad thing? I'm so confused. I can totally hear the TV on the Radio influence there which I enjoy... but I'm just not sure that I like her voice. Though I must say that if she sounded like Tom Waits I would be more than a little concerned for the girl.

Le sigh.
