She And Him Cover The Beach Boys' 'God Only Knows'

Earlier this month She + Him, the virtuous indie folk outfit comprised of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, released a carefully curated album of classic covers. The album, aptly titled Classics, features beautifully treated renditions of a range of timeless popular songs. Including sixties folk rubbed versions of tracks originally recorded by everyone from Dinah Washington to Dusty Springfield. Well, not quite everyone.

This week She + Him rounded out their discography of covers, and released a charmingly mellow version of the Beach Boys' track "God Only Knows." Like most well loved classics, it's a song that has been covered by nearly everyone once, and once by nearly everyone. The delicate tenderness in Deschanel's voice, matched with the soft sunshine of M.Ward's vintage folk sensibilities, combine to deliver an exceptionally sweet version of the song without crossing the line into nauseatingly cute.

The song aired during this week's episode of Deschanel's hit series New Girl. It's now available for download via iTunes, or listen below:
