She & Him to release Christmas holiday album

Zooey Deschanel takes to Twitter to reveal plans for a festival release

She And Him, the duo made up of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, are set to release a Christmas themed ‘holiday record’ later this year, it has been revealed.

Deschanel broke the news via her Twitter account, later adding that the album is to be called ‘A Very She & Him Christmas’.

The singer, songwriter and Hollywood actress wrote:

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!

Funnily enough, the news drew a direct, unlikely response from US pop star Kelly Clarkson, who told Deschanel – “I do not know you but let me just say right now how freakin’ excited I am about a holiday record from @sheandhim”. Deschanel responded by saying: “Thank you so much ms. clarkson! I am so excited that you’re excited!!! :)”

Deschanel recently defended herself against allegations that she made disparaging comments about Downtown LA and will soon be appearing in the comedy show, The New Girl.
