As previously announced, She & Him have a holiday album
due this season, and it’s now been set for Oct. 25 on Merge. A Very She & Him Christmas brings
together holiday tunes inspired by seminal holiday albums by the likes of The
Carpenters, Vince Guaraldi, The Beach Boys, Elvis Presley and more. According
to Merge, “She & Him have set out to create an intimate holiday recording
of Christmas classics that helps bring new emotions out of old songs.”

 

Recorded in Los
Angeles and NYC at various points in 2011, A Very She & Him Christmas sees the
duo stepping back slightly from the layered, lush aesthetic of their critically
acclaimed second album, Volume Two. On A Very She & Him Christmas, Zooey
Deschanel and M. Ward let the songs speak for themselves, oftentimes recording
them with just acoustic guitar and vocals. Consistent in everything are the
elements that have made She & Him one of the most loved bands of the last
few years – Deschanel’s soulful vocal delivery and Ward’s impressive guitar
work.
