She & Him Make Beautiful Music Together

How excited was I to hear that two of my very favorite performers, Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, have teamed up to do an album together? – Over the moon.

Deschanel has been known to lend her singing voice to many of her films, i.e. Winter Passing, The Go-Getter, Bridge to Terabithia, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Elf and many others. I’ve always wondered if she’d decide to put out an album. She has a mesmerizing smoky voice that hearkens back to 1930s cabaret but yet it’s fresh and unique at the same time.

M. Ward is altogether one of the most talented musicians out there and obviously knows how to pick out a good collaboration (he’s worked with Bright Eyes, Jenny Lewis, Cat Power and My Morning Jacket to name a few).

Deschanel and Ward’s collaborative effort is titled She & Him and their debut album, Volume 1, will be released on March 18.

Listen to the first released track from the record – Why Do You Let Me Stay Here
