Listen to Scarlett Johansson's Album Studio Sessions

05/16/2008 at 04:50 PM EDT

Scarlett Johansson recently described her singing voice as tinkerbell on cough syrup.

Judge for yourself.

Fans of the actress-turned-singer can take an online listen to five songs from her new album, Anywhere I Lay My Head, due to be released May 20 on Rhino Records.

With tousled hair pulled back, the un-glammed actress (jeans, sleeveless summer pinafore), 23, croons covers of the Tom Waits tunes "Falling Down," "Anywhere I Lay My Head," "Green Grass," "Who Are You" and "Yesterday Is Here" with video taken from studio sessions in Louisiana with her equally un-glam band.

The surprise? That Jonhasson – so blonde and ethereal-looking – sings in a very monotone, alto, throaty chant.

The verdict?

So far, listeners on the web site have given Johansson a five-star rating.
