She & Him. Him & She. Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward are back for “Volume 3,” the latest offering from the nostalgic folk team. In all actuality, the album should be “Volume 4,” however, the Christmas album isn’t being included the numbered series. To support the new release the ador(k)able duo appeared on David Letterman to perform “Never Wanted Your Love.”
The album of new material includes 11 new songs, three covers and a contribution from Tom Hagerman from Devotchka. She & Him is hitting the road, and yes, Denver will not be on the map (head over here for dates). Salt Lake City is the closest date scheduled on the tour. Last night’s performance on “The Late Show” saw the two perform with a full ensemble. This included Hagerman leading the string section in a beautifully arranged take on “Never Wanted Your Love.” Watch the performance below.
