Scarlett Johansson Sings A New Order Cover For Benefit Album

To benefit The American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR), a leading organization dedicated to the support of HIV/AIDS research, comtemporary artists have come together for The Time Is Now, a compilation album consisting of re-imagined and updated versions of classic hits from the '80s.

One of the more notable covers is a soulful rendition of New Order's "Bizarre Love Triangle" performed by Sugar for Sugar, a new band that includes Julia Haltigan, Holly Miranda, Kendra Morris, and Captain America: Civil War and Ghost in the Shell star, Scarlett Johansson.

"The Time Is Now is a great example of our longstanding relationship with the music industry, and we are deeply grateful to the artists who graciously donated their time and talents to the making of this album," said amfAR Chief Executive Officer Kevin Robert Frost. "With continued support for HIV research, and we are confident that we will ultimately find a cure for the millions of people living with HIV/AIDS today."
