She And Him‘s Zooey Deschanel has written and recorded the theme song for her new sitcom New Girl.
The actress/singer’s character in the show, which premieres in the US on September 20, sings whenever she becomes emotionally overwhelmed.
Deschanel told Billboard.com:
It’s just a part of how she expresses herself. They’re songlets – they come spontaneously to the character. The songs she sings are written into the script.
She added that her singing will incorporate a wide variety of styles, including jazz, heavy metal and a “ghoulish voice”.
Writing about ‘A Very She And Him Christmas’ on Twitter earlier this week, Deschanel said:
Exciting news! @sheandhim will be releasing our first holiday record later this year! Been working on it a while! I’m super pumped about it!
The duo have released two albums – 2008’s ‘Volume One’ and its follow-up ‘Volume Two’ last year.
