Having spent their career together being told how timeless and retro their sound was, it's no real surprise that Zooey Deschanel and M Ward's She & Him are releasing an entire LP's worth of classic covers, perhaps unsurprisingly called Classics and due next week, December 1st - pre-order.
Pre-release single, a faithful rendition of Dusty's "Stay Awhile" sounds like it could have been released in the 60's itself (aside from the glossy production polish), a perfect balance between of Phil Spector standard and blissfully upbeat melody which lends itself to Zooey's melt your heart vocals and M Wards's smooth guitar licks.
I don't think She & Him have played in the UK since 2010. That's got to be due to change soon? Either way, Classics promises to be a record to please listeners of any age over the Christmas holidays.
