She & Him – “Stay Awhile” (Dusty Springfield Cover)

She & Him, the duo of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, signed with Columbia earlier this year, and they posted a teaser for a new album back in August. Today, we finally learn the whole deal. The band’s new LP is called Classics, and it’s a collection of covers of old standards. The band recorded the album live with a 20-piece orchestra, and they’ve shared their version of “Stay Awhile,” Dusty Springfield’s 1964 pop nugget. As Pitchfork points out, you can hear it by heading to their website and tuning the fake radio to 1202 AM.


She & Him is Back

She & Him have a new album coming out this fall! She & Him is an American indie folk duo consisting of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward. On June 27, 2014, it was announced that She & Him had left independent label Merge Records and had joined major label Columbia Records.  This will be their fifth studio album and I can’t wait.
