Let’s listen to ScarJo cover New Order because it’s Friday

More like Fri-YAY!

While you were sleeping, Scarlett Johansson formed a super girl group with Holly Miranda, Kendra Morris and Julia Haltigan called Sugar for Sugar. The foursome (essentially Johannson’s former band, The Singles, minus Este Haim) released a studio cover of New Order’s “Bizarre Love Triangle” today for amFAR’s upcoming cover collective album, “Now is Now.” ScarJo + co. previously existed as the Singles, dropping trippy dance groove “Candy” in 2015, before being hit with a cease-and-desist for the use of their name a few days later. (Turns out, for a Cali band, imitation isn't the highest form of flattery — it's just stealing.)

“Now is Now,” which is slated for an Oct. 7 release, will raise funds for amFAR’s AIDS research and features covers of influential pop songs by fashionable people you really want to hear sing them. Think: a Dita Von Teese and Sebastien Tellier duet of “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me,” Yuna’s “Lovesong” and DNCE’s “What’s Love Got to Do With It.”

This isn't the first time the actress has dabbled in music, having released the album "Anywhere I Lay My Head," entirely comprised of Tom Waits covers, in 2008 and a collaboration with Pete Yorn ("Break Up) in 2009. She also voices a punk rock porccupine in the upcoming animated film "Sing."

So... there's that.
