By now, you should know what to expect out of a She & Him video. If you can’t stand Zooey Deschanel, then why bother? But if you love her, you’ll love She & Him’s new video for “I Could’ve Been Your Girl.” It was directed by Zooey, and released by her own website. So you know exactly what you’re ordering when you hit play, and as a fan of hers, I’m digging it. Will forever think of her as Summer though..
Taking in the history of Zooey Deschanel’s marriage, and divorce of Ben Gibbard, I think we can quickly guess as to who She & Him’s new song “I Could’ve Been Your Girl” is about.
The song’s content is bittersweet for sure, but there’s a twinge of an upbeat sunny nature to the song that is undeniably perfect for the spring weather.
“Never Wanted Your Love” is the 1st single from She & Him’s upcoming Volume 3, and the first track shared for our listening purposes. It’s definitely a song that is made for the fastly approaching spring weather. I remember immediately swooning over Volume 2′s first single “In The Sun”, and while this single is a nice listen, I’m a little underwhelmed on my early listens. Hopefully it will grow on me.
Volume 3 features 11 original songs as well as three covers. Find the tracklist below, along with new tour dates, which includes Central Park’s Summerstage on July 6.

We still got a while until Halloween, so Christmas is still a ways away. Even so, not many people will argue with new She & Him, even if it is Christmas themed. It’s their version of, “A Christmas Waltz”, and it will be on the duo’s upcoming Christmas themed album, A Very She & Him Christmas (October 25 via Merge Records).
Let the manly hearthrobbing of Zooey continue.
She & Him played their darling Volume 2 song “Thieves” for Jimmy Kimmel this past Monday night. It sounds good, but it certainly sounded better when I saw them live last week at Bowery Ballroom.
What’s your favorite song from Volume 2 so far? Is it Thieves? In the Sun? Or is it something else? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comment box.

My attendance of last nights She & Him show at Bowery Ballroom was a blessing for me, as I got tickets 5 hours before the show started. Can’t get any luckier than that. I was extremely excited to hear some retro tunes from She & Him. I was also excited to see Zooey in person just like everyone else in the building (male & female!). It was one of the first times I went to a show by myself, but I had an absolute blast!
Openers The Living Sisters were three girls who sang beautiful harmonies with nothing more than an acoustic. It was very nice but it kinda made me bored after the first 4-5 songs. Nice stuff but not really something I would want to see live again. I’m sure the debut album is lovely though.
The minute that Zooey stepped out the crowd went pretty ape shit. Guys were screaming like fan girls, just happy to ge t a look at her. Don’t worry, she can sing people. I knew she had pipes on her but she really impressed me with her vocals last night. She really does have it all. M. Ward shouldn’t be forgotten either. He absolutely owned the guitar last night, earning his Monster Of Folk title. They mixed songs from Volume’s 1 & 2 giving the songs a upbeat alt-country feel that had all the Zooey look a likes swooning and all the men drooling. I had a lot of fun.
The band asked us to refrain from photos, so I don’t have many. People were sneaky and took some shots throughout the show. I joined in – indiscreetly with my 6’6 frame. I became friends with someone at the show who asked me to send her the photo’s I took, but I couldn’t find her on facebook. So if you are somehow reading this, let me know please!
After the show I waited outside and met M. Ward by himself. I asked for a photo but he said he doesn’t like photos. He was nice but was very, very, shy in an awkward way. I waited another 15 minutes and out came Zooey with her husband, Ben Gibbard from Death Cab. I said hi to Zooey over the other 6 people swarming her, then went to Ben and shook his hand and told him I’m a fan of DC. He was very appreciative that I noticed him, since the rest of the Zooey-maniacs ignored his presence. I didn’t even bother them with a photo request after being deaded by M. Ward.
Go check She & Him out if they are coming near you. Totally worth it for many reasons.
She & Him’s new album Volume 2 is streaming right now at NPR, so you can grab a listen. Spring time is almost upon us, there probably won’t be a better album for those bright sunny days.
I think any music video featuring Zooey Deschaenl is bound to get tons of attention. This video suites this song pretty well. It’s…happy and cute. Have fun Zooey fans!
