Scarlett Johansson, Maeby Fünke, Tegan & Sara Cover Steel Train
ScarJo is one of a handful of notable female artists appearing on the NYC upstarts’ all-female covers album, Terrible Thrills Vol. 1. Joining her are Tegan & Sara, Amanda Palmer, Holly Miranda, Alia Shawkat (AKA: Maeby Fünke!) and many more.
The album is the brainchild of Steel Train songwriter Jack Antonoff, who says he “had pictured a female taking the lead” when writing the new songs for the band’s upcoming self-titled release.
The album will be available in pre-order and vinyl/deluxe packages with Steel Train, on June 29.
