She & Him released a taste of what's to come from their newest volume today with a track titled “I Could’ve Been Your Girl.” The track, which leans on '60s-style production and Zooey Deschanel's country-tinged croon, was written by Deschanel and will appear on the group's upcoming album, Volume 3, which is due out May 7 on Merge Records.
Listen to the track above, and check out the band's tour dates here.
She & Him released its first single from the forthcoming Volume 3, titled "Never Wanted Your Love."
The band, comprised of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, has been quiet since 2011's A Very She & Him Christmas. Volume 3 is the first album released since Deschanel's New Girl series on Fox.
About the relatable dilemma of initially resisting, then succumbing and ultimately getting over a disastrous suitor, "Never Wanted Your Love" showcases She & Him's signature catchy melodies and feel-good sound.
"Never Wanted Your Love" is currently available to purchase on iTunes and other digital retailers. Volume 3 will be released on May 7 via Merge Records.
Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, better known to some as She & Him, are set to release their third album on May 7 through Merge Records. The album is titled (unsurprisingly) Volume 3. The release will take the duo on a month-long tour, which kicks off on June 13 at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
Volume 3 includes 14 songs—11 that were written by Deschanel and three covers. The band’s press release describes the album as a “bleached-out-in-the-sun pop record” that shines a new light on the band dynamically, including “disco grooves [and] string arrangements.”
The album also includes guest spots from Mike Watt, Tilly and the Wall, Rilo Kiley’s Pierre De Reeder, NRBQ’s Joey Spampinato and Devotchka’s Tom Hagerman. Check out the band’s tour dates and tracklist for Volume 3 below. You can see on-sale information on tickets here.

Scoot over, Zooey, you’ve got company. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox’s New Girl will feature Reno 911!’s Niecy Nash as a purse snatching prostitute (presumably without a heart of gold). Nash joins actor David Walton as one of the show’s newcomers, but Entertainment Weekly reports that Walton will have a more substantial role.
First the fabric of our lives, now the Siri of our lives: Apple has given Zooey Deschanel a new iPhone 4S ad where she meanders around the house in pajamas, asks Siri to play '50s classics and order her tomato soup.
The video was first released last night on ESPN. Check out the video below.
Oh Zooey, your charm is undeniable. Your SNL hosting was a treat. The silent-French-dance number inspired by Oscar contender The Artist was indeed, inspired. And between Mary Kate Olsen, Michael Cera and Björk stopping by to knit, thrift and sing, we're going to say you did a good job.
Zooey Deschanel made her SNL debut last week with Karmin appearing as the musical guest. You can check out a few clips from her appearance below, which includes the aforementioned parody of The Artist.
Deschanel and Kristen Wiig:
**The Artist Parody:**
We like when our favorites appear on SNL, and 2011 brought some ideal acts. There were notable performances by The Black Keys, Radiohead and The Strokes.
Now, the new girl to television will be the latest addition, taking on the daunting task of hosting SNL on Feb. 11. That’s right, Zooey Deschanel will host with musical guest Karmin.
Do we think her skits will have anything to do with play teeth and accents? A singing act where she’s surrounded by 500 photographs of herself? An unwanted but highly likely scripted shout-out to Ben? Should we even question it?
Either way, we look forward to Zooey’s debut on SNL this February. If you haven’t checked out New Girl yet, which at this point we probably wouldn’t believe you if you said yes, you should.
To get you ready for her, here's your chance to learn 10 things you didn’t know about Zooey below.
(500) Days of Summer co-stars Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt have reunited for a musical collaboration, recording Frank Loesser's 1947 hit "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?" with Deschanel on ukulele and Gordon-Levitt on guitar.
Neither actor is a stranger to musical collaborations, of course, with Deschanel partnering with M. Ward for three She & Him albums and Gordon-Levitt's involvement with hitRECord (see our 10 favorite hitRECord covers).
The track was uploaded to YouTube by Deschanel's HelloGiggles account. You can watch it below:
