Aside from Sufjan Stevens' Songs for Christmas
and Bright Eyes' A Christmas Album
, it's pretty rare that indie music artists decide to partake in the holidaze with a full album. That's why we were super excited to learn via Zooey Deschanel's Twitter that She & Him
, her pop duo with M.Ward, are planning a holiday album for this upcoming Christmas season. Deschanel tweeted yesterday: "Exciting news! @sheandhim will be releasing our first holiday record later this year! Been working on it a while! I'm super pumped about it!"
This is good news considering M.Ward is reportedly back to recording solo for a while too. Can't wait to hear the holiday cheer from these two.
