Scarlett Johansson Breaks Up With Pete Yorn

Scarlett Johansson Breaks Up With Pete Yorn

In 2006, singer/songwriter Pete Yorn contacted Scarlett Johansson with the idea to record a duets album in the spirit of Serge Gainsbourg’s 1960s recordings with Brigitte Bardot.

“I was having a strange week of insomnia and when I finally passed out, it came to me in a dream,” says Yorn. “I woke up and the whole thing was in my head, fully formed.” Scarlett was intrigued by Yorn’s out-of-the-blue invitation. “It sounded like an interesting little adventure,” she explains. “The idea of two people vocalizing their relationship through duets.”

The album Break Up was recorded in producer Sunny Levine‘s garage studio and is set for a September 8 release. “I always thought of it as just a small project between friends,” explains Scarlett. “I’ve loved the album ever since I heard it completed. It perfectly captured where I was in my life at the time.”
