Singer/songwriter Pete Yorn and actress/singer Scarlett Johansson teamed up in 2009 for the album Break Up. Now they have announced a new EP, Apart, and shared its first single "Bad Dreams." Apart is due out June 1 via Capitol. Below is the tracklist, as well as the audio for "Bad Dreams." There's also a video for the song directed by Sophie Muller, but that's an Apple Music exclusive and you'll have to watch it over there.

Apart features five tracks, four new songs and a new version of "Tomorrow," a song that originally appeared on Yorn's last album, 2016's ArrangingTime

Johansson had this to say about the EP in a press release: "Being able to revisit this project with Pete in a totally different context but within the same creative parameters is a unique artistic opportunity for me. It is always a pleasure to sing with Pete because I think our voices and stories complement each other."

Yorn had this to say: "It was great to collaborate with Scarlett again. We recorded 'Bad Dreams' over a couple of days in downtown L.A. at the Spring Street studio of our old friend R. Walt Vincent.... If Breakup was dealing with an unraveling relationship, Apart is dealing with the aftermath. It acknowledges the array of heavy emotions that come up living separate lives. You're getting used to the idea of not being with someone who has been a big part of your life. Even after a break up has occurred, the presence of an ex still seems to loom large in one's mind for a while. There are moments during the day where you wonder, is it really over? Or will there be another chapter in the relationship now that it has evolved? The EP is an attempt to sort through all this and get comfortable with the excitement of new freedoms while facing underlying fears of the unknown road that lies ahead." 

Apart EP Tracklist:

1. Iguana Bird
2. Bad Dreams
3. Movies
4. Cigarillo
5. Tomorrow (Remix ft. Scarlett Johansson)
