She and Him‘s rendition of the 1964 track will feature on their forthcoming, fifth album, ‘Classics’, alongside 12 other covers of classic tracks, and will see the duo backed by a 20-piece orchestra. Speaking about the duo’s fifth album earlier this year, Zooey Deschanel said:
“We are incredibly excited to release a record of our favourite 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.”
‘Classics’ will be released on December 2.
