She and Him



She and Him
Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward—who first met in 2006 for a movie soundtrack project for the film the Go-Getter in which they recorded a version of Richard and Linda Thompson’s “When I Get To The Border”—have recorded an album under the moniker She & Him. Sensibly (or optimistically) titled Volume One. The album was released on March 18, 2008 on Merge Records

According to Merge, at that initial studio session the two “were immediately struck by one another’s talents and found an instant rapport. During a conversation about their shared love of old records, Zooey let slip that she wrote her own songs, which she recorded alone at home on her computer. Somewhat shy about sharing these musical morsels, she was eventually persuaded to send them to M. He was instantly impressed, and they soon reconvened at his Portland studio to begin work. Recorded over a period of several months between acting work (She) and touring commitments (Him), the pair found time to bring Zooey’s fledgling songs to gorgeous fruition.”
Why don't you sit right down and make me smile? (uh huh)
You make me feel like I am just a child
Why do you end it?
Just give me credit
I'm just sitting on the shelf
Why Do You Let Me Stay Here
You Really Got A Hold On Me
