Scarlett Johansson has released a dance track with her new all-girl pop band, The Singles, that includes Este Haim (of the band Haim) on drums.

Johansson says the group will be "super-pop," listing Grimes, the Bangles, and the Go-Go's as her inspirations.

I wanted it to be like those bands: ultra pop but also a little ironic, a little in on the joke. The idea was to write super-pop dance music written and performed by girls.

The Singles have released their first track 'Candy' via Federal Prism, produced by Dave Sitek of TV On The RadioRolling Stone describes it as 'a three-minute electro jam that brings to mind a lost Robyn song.'

I would even venture to say that since the band features a member of Haim, Taylor Swift's latest BFF's, you can expect some tie-in with the trademark-obsessed superstar.

The 12-inch single, Candy, is available for pre-order here.
