Last night, Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward
(aka She & Him
) stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon
to promote their new album Classics
. The charming folk duo (with the help of backing band The Roots
) performed a cover of Dusty Springfield's "Stay A While," which is featured on the new album among 12 other old-timey covers. Classics
was recorded live with an orchestral backing band, and will be out on December 2 as the retro pair's first record under Columbia.
Along with the She-focused performance of "Stay A While," She & Him also released their take on Frank Sinatra's "Time After Time" this morning. The track also highlights Deschanel's unique and smokey voice, but features a little more of my personal favorite, M. Ward. Check it out below.
