She & Him: In The Sun (Music Video)

Actress Zooey Deschanel and her good pal and musical collaborator M. Ward have teamed up once again to bring us their new collection "Volume 2", after the stunning success of their first release (appropriately titled) "Volume 1". The album is another great blend of 50's and 60's inspired folk pop tracks with a few great cover songs thrown in for good measure.

The track listing for the album goes like this,

1) Thieves
2) In The Sun
3) Don't Look Back
4) Ridin' In My Car
5) Lingering Still
6) Me And You
7) Gonna Get Along Without You Now
8) Home
9) I'm Gonna Make It Better
10) Sing
11) Over It Over Again
12) Brand New Shoes
13) If You Can't Sleep

The first single from the album is (obviously) In The Sun which features backing vocals by indie group Tilly & The Wall. Zooey said of writing the song,

"I originally composed it with a classic jazz chord progression—with a little chromatic step—and it was slower. But we got in the studio and Matt [Ward asked], 'Why don't we put a Bee Gees beat on it?' And it totally came to life in a way I didn't expect."

Check out the video above and if you like what you hear, go purchase the album. I'm sad I'll be missing the She & Him concert tomorrow night here in Toronto, but I saw them on tour for the last album so I guess I can't complain really.
