Zooey Deschanel Christmas Album Out Next Week
New Girl star Zooey Deschanel is in the holiday spirit. With her She & Him musical partner M. Ward, the actress is releasing a Christmas album next week.
Called A Very She & Him Christmas, the Merge Records release contains 12 holiday classics such as "I'll Be Home for Christmas," "Silver Bells" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." The label writes, "Inspired by seminal holiday albums by the likes of The Carpenters, Vince Guaraldi, The Beach Boys, Elvis Presley and more, She & Him have set out to create an intimate holiday recording of Christmas classics that helps bring new emotions out of old songs."
Pre-orders are currently being accepted with exclusive She & Him wrapping paper included as a bonus. One-of-a-kind She & Him mittens and winter cap are also being offered as part of a bundle package.
A portion of the proceeds of the CD, which is also available in red vinyl, will benefit 826 National, a nonprofit organization that provides strategic leadership, administration, and other resources to eight writing and tutoring centers.
Deschanel will sign the national anthem at Game 4 of the World Series Sunday.
