She & Him announce new album ‘Classics’

Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward's fifth album will come out this autumn

She And Him have announced plans for their new album, ‘Classics’.

Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward’s fifth album will be released this autumn, following last year’s ‘Volume 3’ and the band’s similarly titled 2008 debut, ‘Volume One’, and 2010’s ‘Volume Two’. The pair also released a special festive album ‘A Very She And Him Christmas’ in 2011.

The new album will be made up of 13 covers of classic tracks, and will see the duo backed by a 20 piece orchestra. In a statement Deschanel said: “We are incredibly excited to release a record of our favorite songs. 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.”

The band recently released a teaser trailer for the record.
