My friend Melissa called me out today saying, “It’s not even Thanksgiving yet!”.
But if you’re like me: looking for gift ideas, despise holiday shopping in person and working on an early gift list; then early November (…or rather, MOvember) is just in time to start research.
Zooey Deschanel (She) and M. Ward (Him) present all the Christmas standards on this 12 track album and do a fine job.
The album isn’t fussy, it focuses on simple vocals. I imagine this album playing dimly as friends arrive for Christmas lunch and presents.
I think my favorite of all the tracks is Christmas Wish which is the only track that features M. Ward’s vocals rather than Zooey’s.
A Very She & Him Christmas Track List:
The Christmas Waltz
Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
I’ll Be Home for Christmas
Sleigh Ride 7 Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree
Baby, It’s Cold Outside
Little Saint Nick – (it’s not officially Christmas for me until I hear the Beach Boys version)
The Christmas Song
A portion of the album’s sales will support literary organization 826 National – a nonprofit tutoring, writing, and publishing organization. Plus fans who order the deluxe version of A Very She & Him Christmas on CD or red vinyl LP in the Merge store have the option of ordering the album with a knitted She & Him holiday hat and/or mittens while supplies last.
