Scarlett Johansson and Pete Yorn have reunited once again to release their brand new track “Bad Dreams”.
Johansson, 33, and Yorn, 43, unveiled their latest offering Friday, while confirming the song would be taken off their upcoming LP “Apart”, which is set to be released June 1.
Johansson released her debut album “Anywhere I Lay My Head” in 2008, before she joined forces with Yorn a year later to release “Break Up”.
Give “Bad Dreams” a listen below:
Yorn said of Johansson: “It was great to collaborate with Scarlett again. We recorded ‘Bad Dreams’ over a couple of days in downtown L.A. at the Spring Street studio of our old friend R. Walt Vincent.”
He added, “If ‘Break Up’ was dealing with an unravelling relationship, ‘Apart’ is dealing with the aftermath. It acknowledges the array of heavy emotions that come up living separate lives. You’re getting used to the idea of not being with someone who has been a big part of your life. Even after a break-up has occurred, the presence of an ex still seems to loom large in one’s mind for a while.”
Yorn continued, “There are moments during the day where you wonder, ‘is it really over? Or will there be another chapter in the relationship now that it has evolved?’ The EP is an attempt to sort through all this and get comfortable with the excitement of new freedoms while facing underlying fears of the unknown road that lies ahead.”
“Being able to revisit this project with Pete in a totally different context but within the same creative parameters is a unique artistic opportunity for me. It is always a pleasure to sing with Pete because I think our voices and stories complement each other,” Johansson added.
