Scarlett Johansson’s sporadic music career has included an album of Tom Waits covers and a collaborative record with Pete Yorn, but this time she’s running on pure girl power.

Johansson is the frontwoman for a new ladies-only supergroup, the Singles, which features bandmates Holly Miranda, Kendra Morris, Julia Haltigan and Haim’s Este Haim (who trades her bass duties for drums for here). You can hear the synth-driven first single “Candy,” produced by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek (who also helmed Johansson’s Waits covers album, 2009’s Anywhere I Lay My Head) below and pre-order its limited-edition vinyl here.

“The idea was to write super-pop dance music written and performed by girls,” said Johansson, who cites the Bangles, the Go-Gos and Grimes as influences for the project. “I wanted it to be like those bands: ultra-pop but also a little ironic, a little in on the joke.”
