Scarlett Johansson, 3D Pair On ‘Summertime’

The soundtrack for Everardo Valerio Gout’s Spanish-language thriller Days Of Grace looks interesting – with contributions from Nick Cave, Atticus Ross (The Social Network) and Shigeru Umebayashi (House of Flying Daggers).

The CD isn’t due out until May 8th, but an unusual track from the soundtrack has already leaked out.

The track, a cover of George Gershwin’s Summertime, pairs Scarlett Johansson with 3D (Robert Del Naja) of Massive Attack.

Johansson’s vocal career hasn’t gotten a lot of traction yet and her albums have even been dismissed by some as vanity projects. But this collaboration actually works pretty well, taking both Johansson and Gershwin into new territory.
