Scarlett Johansson has released a new song called “super-pop,” backed by The Singles“.
“The idea was to write super-pop dance music written and performed by girls (…) I wanted it to be like those bands: ultra-pop but also a little ironic, a little in on the joke.” Scarlett J. told Rolling Stone, citing Grimes, the Bangles and the Go-Go’s as influences.
“The Singles” is group of lady musicians including Holly Miranda, Kendra Morris, Julia Haltigan and Este Haim of Haim on drums.
Their first song, “Candy,” was produced by Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio, who previously worked with Johansson on her album of Tom Waits covers, Anywhere I Lay My Head. It’s a sweet and salacious 3-minute electro jam, ready for the dance floor, chock full of candy-coated metaphors.
