Indie duo She & Him, made up of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, cover timeless classics on their first major-label debut, Classics. The album was recorded live and assisted by a twenty-piece orchestra, “allowing a spontaneity that captured the spirit of the songs in their truest forms.”
Deschanel says about the album:
“We are incredibly excited to release a record of our favourite songs. It was a dream of ours to record these songs in a way that highlighted the brilliance of the songwriting and the beauty of their melodies. We had a wonderful time making the record and we hope people have a wonderful time listening to it.”
Some of the classic covers include Frank Sinatra’s “Time After Time” and Dusty Springfield’s “Stay Awhile”.
