Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward to Make Sweet, Sweet Album

Turns out, the musical collaboration between singer-songwriter M. Ward and the insanely adorable Zooey Deschanel isn't just a one-time thing. In an interview with the LA radio station KCRW, Deschanel said the two have recorded a full-length album coming out in March. The two recorded "When I Get to the Border" together for the movie The Go-Getter and decided not to stop there:

We had so much fun that M asked to hear these demos that I'd made. I write a lot of music but I'm kind of shy about it. He asked to hear it, and then he heard it, and he asked if we could do something together, because it was fun, and why not?

The two are recording as She and Him, and their first album is called Volume One — which, I hope, means volumes two, three, and more could be coming down the line. Two songs from She and Him, "Why Do You Let Me Stay Here?" and "Sentimental Heart," are streaming over at this MySpace page right now. Both feature Deschanel's singing, which I really love — and not just because I tend to adore Zooey in any form. I'm especially fond of the first song's old-timey style, and both have me eager to hear more from She and Him.

The two also appeared together in LA recently, and you can check out two of the songs they performed, "Lonesome Town" and "I Put a Spell on You," if you

I liked her as Anita in Almost Famous, I loved her as Kate in Eulogy, but I love that movie in general. I thought she was more fun to watch in Failure To Launch then SJP, and she was sweet as Ms. Edmonds, the teacher in Bridge to Tarabithia. But thats just my opinion. :)

Wow, this is very exciting news!! I really think M. Ward is an excellent songwriter (BTW, I love that Zoe actually calls him "M") and her vocals are well suited to his soulful style.
