She & Him – “The Christmas Waltz”

She & Him’s yuletide album A Very She & Him Christmas comes out in a couple of weeks (basically at the exact same moment department stores start putting up the tinsel and paper snowflakes). Below, you can grab the album’s opener, their version of “The Christmas Waltz.” Though it’s not quite part of the holiday-music canon, the song is an old standard that’s been recorded by artists as varied as Frank Sinatra and the Carpenters. The She & Him version is as twee and as pretty as you’d expect.
