She and Him are set to release their new 13 track covers album Classics on December 2nd, an album of “carefully-selected, timeless standards.”

Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward recorded the album live, “allowing a spontaneity that captured the spirit of the songs in their truest forms.” Ward pieced together most of the arrangements on Classics with assistance from a a full 20-piece orchestra.

“We are incredibly excited to release a record of our favorite songs,” Deschanel states. “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.”

Covers include Frank Sinatra’s “Time After Time”, the Carole King-penned “Oh No, Not My Baby”, and Dusty Springfield’s “Stay Awhile” which you can see streaming below in their new video.

The album marks the duo’s major label debut and first official release for Columbia Records, following their stint at Merge Records. Pre-orders for the album are available now.
