One part religion, one part sex!
The album’s concept is that every track will serve as a different radio station, so you’ll get a bit of everything.
But one of the most surprising tracks is Sexy Bible which features Scarlett Johansson ready a passage from the Old Testament and making it as sexy as possible — and yes, she pulls it off!
The SNL alum spoke about the album saying:
“I’ve always wanted to do a sketch about the Old Testament, specifically Deuteronomy,” O’Brien tells Rolling Stone. “The Old Testament is filled with beautiful stuff, but also some weirdly specific, random rules and speeches. Deuteronomy could be called ‘Laws for Stuff That Will Never Apply to 99% of Civilization,’ like what to do with a dead animal you find [or] what to do to a woman who grabs the junk of a guy who her husband is fighting. [It’s] a very funny time capsule of what those guys were worried about back then.”
You don’t have to take our word that Johansson can make the Old Testament sound seductive — take a listen for yourself (below)!
What do you think? Did Scarlett sell you on the album or what?!
