Listen: Scarlett Johansson's All-Female Pop Band THE SINGLES

The music and film industries have experienced a huge number of crossover performers throughout the years, from Bruce Willis (Bruno!) and Russell Crowe to Will SmithMark Wahlberg, and many, many more. The Avengers star Scarlett Johansson has gotten in on the action before, famously covering Tom Waits a few years back. But now she's at it again with a new band called the Singles, and their first song is here.

Rolling Stone has the story, which reveals that Johansson has teamed with Holly Miranda, Kendra Morris, and Julia Haltigan to form a "super-pop" group.

"The idea was to write super-pop dance music written and performed by girls," says Johansson, citing the influence of Grimes, the Bangles and the Go-Go's. "I wanted it to be like those bands: ultra-pop but also a little ironic, a little in on the joke."

You can listen to their first single, Candy, in the player below. What do you think?
