Serial cover-killer and some-time actress Scarlett Johannson has recorded a duet with Serge Gainsbourg’s son Lulu, which will feature on a forthcoming tribute LP dedicated to the late auteur, entitled ‘From Gainsbourg To Lulu’.

The duo cover ‘Bonnie & Clyde’, with Johansson translating the lyrics originally sung by Brigitte Bardot (the original Bonnie, circa 1968) into English, a move which is slightly odd given Lulu sings his father’s part in French. I’m not sure it works to be honest, but have a listen via this video, which I think doubles up as an ad for Moet. Scarlett certainly quaffs a lot of the stuff.
