Not only is Zooey Deschanel gearing up for the premiere of her new TV show "New Girl," but it's just been announced that her band, She & Him will be releasing their first-ever holiday album, A Very She & Him Christmas on October 25th, 2011.
A Very She & Him Christmas is a wonderful collection of holiday tunes from two of music's most impressive artists – Zooey Deschanel (She) & M. Ward (Him). Inspired by seminal holiday albums by the likes of The Carpenters, Vince Guaraldi, The Beach Boys, Elvis Presley and more, She & Him have set out to create an intimate holiday recording of Christmas classics that helps bring new emotions out of old songs. On A Very She & Him Christmas, Deschanel and 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, both sounding as timeless as ever.
The track listing for A Very She & Him Christmas is:
The Christmas Waltz
Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree
