She & Him
(aka Zooey Deschanel
and M. Ward
) are releasing their new album Classics
through Columbia on December 2. The record is a compilation of covers ranging from Ella Fitzgerald to Frank Sinatra that the folksy duo have reimagined with their own compositions. In the meantime, the duo has been keeping busy with late night appearances, song releases, and now, a lovely lil' music video.
The video for 'Stay Awhile,' which they performed onLate Night
a few weeks ago, was released on Wednesday. It was adapted from the original Dusty Springfield classic from 1964 and centers on Deschanel, who sings the track, as she dances with an invisible (but very talented!) partner through a retro-looking house and into the clouds. Ward, meanwhile, stay stationary in the little house, cooly playing an invisible guitar and looking pretty slick in his sunglasses.
