I was perusing through a list of albums due to come out this year and while I didn't see anything spectacular, I was happy to see...
A new B-52s album due out at the end of February! It has only been 16 years since their last album. Funplex. The single is also called Funplex and I heard it at their show last June, but it's hard to judge most songs when only heard live.
Also, I knew she had an album coming out, but it's weird to see she's really doing it. Yes, Scarlett Johansson, and while I have been so tired of her for the past year, that doesn't mean I'm not drooling a little over The Other Boleyn Girl (I actually heard someone pronounce it "Bowlin' Girl" the other day and died a little inside).
Here's a bad video of one of the tracks, worth listening to because it sounds nothing like her at all. And no, I don't plan on buying the album but I'm still posting it, so there. It was certainly a different way to go, this song. Her album (due out in May), Anywhere I Lay My Head is, I believe, a Tom Waits cover album. Again, wouldn't have guessed.
The video is just a placeholder, merely a Lost In Translation compilation, but hey, it's pretty at least.
