Scarlett Johansson is reportedly hoping to record a second album. Johansson released her debut LP, a collection of Tom Waits covers titled Anywhere I Lay My Head, last spring to mixed reviews. Next time, however, Johansson will have a go at writing her own songs, possibly inspired by a subject she’s normally reluctant to discuss in the media: her marriage to actor/onetime fiancé of Alanis Morissette, Ryan Reynolds. “I don’t think I’d do covers, so it’d be a project that I have to dedicate myself to,” Johansson told MTV. Johansson does have some experience penning her own tunes, writing Anywhere‘s “Song For Jo.” If another covers album is in the future, Johansson has already expressed an interest in Leonard Cohen, with whom she’d like to collaborate.
