As much as we enjoy watching Zooey Deschanel playing the adorkable Jessica Day on the FOX sitcom the New Girl, we’re much bigger fans of She & Him, her musical partnership with singer-songwriter M. Ward. On May 7 the indie-pop duo will release their latest studio album, Volume 3, via Merge Records. As with their past releases the record was produced by Ward, with the majority of the 14-track effort penned by Deschanel, which also includes three covers and a slew of guest appearances from the likes of Joey Spampinato (NRBQ), Mike Watt, Tilly and the Wall, Pierre de Reeder (Rilo Kiley) and Tom Hagerman (Devotchka).
Yesterday She & Him released the album’s lead single Never Wanted Your Love, which features everything we’ve come to love from their brand of vintage pop. Let’s take a listen…
She & Him will head out on a 18-date summer tour, which kicks off with a show at the historic Ryman Auditorium, on June 13.
