Endearing, invested, and exceptional in her recent roles in “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World,” James Ponsoldt’s “Smashed,” and “The Spectacular Now,” actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead has devoted some time on the side toward a musical outlet even as her star's been rising of late, and not without fine company. She and hip-hop producer Dan The Automator put together a band a year ago, Got A Girl, made a Twitter account just two days ago, and, just as quickly, have uploaded their first official track for the world to see.

Got A Girl

Endearing, invested, and exceptional in her recent roles in “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World,” James Ponsoldt’s “Smashed,” and “The Spectacular Now,” actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead has devoted some time on the side toward a musical outlet even as her star's been rising of late, and not without fine company. She and hip-hop producer Dan The Automator put together a band a year ago, Got A Girl, made a Twitter account just two days ago, and, just as quickly, have uploaded their first official track for the world to see.

The duo have just released their single, “You And Me” online, and it certainly fits in with the inspirations that Winstead previously cited: “French 60’s pop, Jane Birkin… married with Dan’s sensibility, which is his beats and a little bit of that low-key hip-hop vibe.” The project was first announced about a year ago, and came into being when the Deltron 3030 performer saw a clip of Winstead singing as he finished up contributions to the soundtrack of “Scott Pilgrim.”

Catch the slinky number below, and also check out our initial cinematic glimpse of Winstead’s pipes -- in Quentin Tarantino’s “Death Proof.” Let's hope an album's not far behind. In other actress-turned-singer news, Zooey Deschanel has a new record under her She & Him guise with M. Ward (their best yet), and she's made her directorial debut on the video for lead single "I Could've Been Your Girl." Watch that below too.
