She And Him release 'The Capitol Studios Sessions' EP
The digital release will feature four tracks originally found on their 'Volume 3' LP
The four track digital-only EP was recorded over the summer at Hollywood's Capitol Studios and features brand new versions of songs that originally featured on the duo's fourth album, 'Volume 3', which was released earlier this year. Consequence of Sound reports that the new versions of 'I Could've Been Your Girl', 'Shadow of Love', 'Snow Queen' and 'Turn to White' are "intimate" and are "characteristic of the band's live performances".
'Volume 3' followed their similarly titled 2008 debut, 'Volume One', and 2010's 'Volume Two', as well as their festive album 'A Very She And Him Christmas', which was released in 2011. 'Volume 3' was produced by M Ward, and sees guest appearances from Mike Watt, Tilly and the Wall, Pierre de Reeder of Rilo Kiley and Devotchka's Tom Hagerman.
The album featured covers of Blondie's 'Sunday Girl', as well as Ellie Greenwich's 'Baby' and 1950s classic 'Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me' and was recorded in New York, Los Angeles and Portland.
Zooey Deschanel is currently starring in US sitcom, New Girl, but is also set to play country music legend Loretta Lynn on Broadway. Deschanel will appear as the singer in a stage production of the 1980 film Coal Miner's Daughter, which originally saw Sissy Spacek take on the role of Lynn with the late Levon Helm of The Band playing her father.
