Scarlett Johansson is in the spotlight with her new movie, Captain America: Winter Soldier, but we really want to shine the light on her recording career. You may have heard her vocals in the Days of Grace soundtrack released by Lakeshore Records. Featured in the George Gershwin standard, “Summertime,” remixed by Robert Del Naja (of Massive Attack) and Tim Goldsworthy, Johansson’s vocals are ethereal and not to be missed. But, if by chance you haven’t heard it, we’ve got you covered.

The album also features a score by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis (“The Road”; “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford”), Academy Award-winner Atticus Ross (“The Social Network”; “The Book of Eli”) with Leopold Ross & Claudia Sarne, and Shigeru Umebayashi (The Grandmaster).
More to love: In the past two years, Johansson’s vocals have been associated with Oscar-nominated films such as Her in which she sings “Moon Song” (check out this acoustic version), and the Oscar-nominated climate documentary, Chasing Ice, in which she contributed her vocal talents to “Before My Time.” We have a very good hunch that we will be hearing a lot more from her.
