She And Him have shared their cover of Dusty Springfield's 'Stay Awhile'.

The song is available to hear via the duo's website and will feature on their forthcoming new album, 'Classics'. The record is set for release on December 1 and will be made up of 13 covers of classic tracks and see the pair backed by a 20 piece orchestra. Watch a new trailer for the video above. In a statement singer Zooey 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."

She And Him's most recent release was 'The Capitol Studios Sessions' EP, which came out in December 2013. The four-track digital-only EP was recorded last year at Hollywood's Capitol Studios and featured brand new versions of songs that originally appeared on the duo's fourth album, 'Volume 3'.

'Volume 3' was released in 2013 and followed their similarly titled 2008 debut, 'Volume One', and 2010's 'Volume Two'. The pair's festive album 'A Very She And Him Christmas' was released in 2011. 'Volume 3' was produced by M Ward, and featured guest appearances from Mike Watt, Tilly and the Wall, Pierre de Reeder of Rilo Kiley and Devotchka's Tom Hagerman.
