Just yesterday we got word that Zooey Deschanel will star in a new HBO series, but first she's got an album to promote. Though She & Him Volume 2 won't hit us until March 23rd, there's some good news for fans of the Deschanel/M. Ward collaboration: the first single has been leaked!
"In the Sun" is just what we've come to expect from the indie duo; Zooey Deschanel's soft, girlish voice sings over M. Ward's melodic tune on the piano and guitar. Vocally, we don't hear any of the "him," but Zooey gets a boost from special guest Tilly & the Wall. The tune is upbeat and soothing (if not just a little forgettable), and I'm still pretty eager to get my hands on the full album. To give it a listen for yourself, just read more.
