Scarlett Johansson is no stranger to the music scene, but her latest project is something completely different.
The actress has assembled a pop supergroup featuring singer-songwriters Julia Haltigan, Holly Miranda and Kendra Morris, as well as eldest HAIM sister Este Haim, who's traded in her trademark bass for a seat behind the drum kit. Johannson cites Grimes, the Bangles and the Go-Go's as influences for the group, currently calling themselves The Singles.
"The idea was to write super-pop dance music written and performed by girls," Johansson told Rolling Stone
. "I wanted it to be like those bands: ultra-pop but also a little ironic, a little in on the joke."
Check out the group's fun, electro-pop single "Candy" below.
The Singles is a new direction for Johansson's music career, which has already included a 2008 album of Tom Waits covers and a Serge Gainsbourg-inspired collaboration with Pete Yorn.
"Candy" was produced by TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek, who will be releasing the single
on his Federal Prism label.
Johansson and husband Romain Dauriac welcomed a baby girl, named Rose, back in September. See more on the couple's happy news in the video below.
