Editors’ Notes

Riding high with her own TV show (The New Girl), Zooey Deschanel and her musical foil M. Ward put together this likable album of holiday fare. It captures a sweet, retro feel; what’s Christmas but a chance to wax nostalgic for the wonders of childhood and Christmases past? The easeful arrangements bring out the best in classic Christmas tunes such as “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” “Sleigh Ride,” “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” and “The Christmas Song.” Guitars, ukulele, occasional keyboards, and sweet vocal ensembles (shining on “Christmas Day” and “Christmas Wish”) make this a laidback celebration, designed to be played as lights blink and eggnog is sipped. The copyright date may be 2011, but this is more in line with classic holiday albums from the ‘50s through the early ‘70s.

Customer Reviews

A very charming Christmas

Everything Zooey Deschanel touches turns into something charming and wonderful, and this album is no exception. I am not a big fan of holiday albums, but this one is really lovely. The songs are done in Zooey's and M. Ward's enigmatic style while remaining true to the originals. This album is a perfect companion to the two previous She & Him CDs, and is going to be one of my most played albums this Christmas. I highly recommend this to anyone who needs some holiday spirit- She & Him won't disappoint! :-)

I thought it would be heartwarming and fun, but it sounded painfully depressing. I know they were trying to go for that stripped down feel, but it just sounded sad.

She & Him feature the somewhat unlikely pairing of country-folk artist M. Ward and actress/singer/songwriter Zooey Deschanel. While starring in the 2007 film The Go-Getter, Deschanel was asked by director Martin Hynes to perform a duet with Ward, who had agreed to helm the movie's soundtrack. The two recorded a cover of Richard & Linda Thompson's "When I Get to the Border" and later reconvened in Portland, where they began recording Deschanel's original songs (which the actress had previously demoed...
