Watch A Teaser For She & Him’s New Album

A quick video has been released to tease the release of She & Him's new album. The next installment of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward's project is due out in the fall and will presumably be called Volume Four to follow the naming convention of their non-holiday albums so far. It'll be their first album… More »

New Brian Wilson Album May Feature Lana Del Rey, Frank Ocean, Zooey Deschanel

In the 10 years since Brian Wilson finally released Smile, the Beach Boys maestro has mostly stuck to passion projects like What I Really Want For Christmas, Brian Wilson Reimagines Gershwin, and In The Key Of Disney. The only thing that could pass for a traditional Wilson album was 2008's California song cycle with Va… More »

Prince (Feat. Zooey Deschanel) – “FALLINLOVE2NITE”

When Prince guested on The New Girl last month, he performed a song with Zooey Deschanel called "FALLINLOVE2NITE." The song, a zippy EDM pop thing that sounds very little like typical Prince or Zooey Deschanel music, is now streaming online. Check it out below. More »

Watch Prince On New Girl

Prince hasn't acted in anything besides music videos since his 1990 movie Graffiti Bridge. But this Sunday, Fox will air an episode of New Girl, arguably the funniest show on TV, after the Super Bowl, and Prince will guest star on that episode. (Prince presumably has Super Bowl cred because of the unbelievably fucking awesome… More »

Here Are The Musical Sketches From Jimmy Fallon & Justin Timberlake’s Christmas SNL

Christmastime has given us some classic Saturday Night Live episodes over the years. This past weekend's show, hosted by ex-cast member and future Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon, was not one of the them. Joining Fallon was the dangerously overexposed triple threat Justin Timberlake. It was the highest rated SNL in years, though, and there… More »

Watch She & Him Play Conan

On last night's episode of Conan, the twee trad-pop megastars She & Him served as musical guests, bringing a supporting cast that looked nothing like the one they brought to The Tonight Show last week. This time around they had a full standing-up string section rather than the choreographed backing singers of their last TV… More »

Watch She & Him Play Leno

She & Him write some pretty simple songs, but when they rolled through The Tonight Show last night, they had a whole lot of help in playing one of them. Playing "I've Got Your Number, Son," one of the songs from their new Volume 3, Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward had help from five backu… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

I'm not entirely sure this week's pick for best video even qualifies as a music video; it certainly stretches the definition. But in its impeccable planning and its flawless execution, it captured imaginations over the weekend and dominated the conversation come Monday. It felt like an actual honest-to-god event, and how many of those do… More »

She & Him – “I Could’ve Been Your Girl” Video

For certain segments of the population, including some of us who may be reluctant to admit such things, an adorable Zooey Deschanel dance routine is pretty much audio-visual crack cocaine. And that group of people (which, let's be honest, probably encompasses Stereogum's entire readership, as well as its staff) should enjoy the living hell out… More »

Stream She & Him Volume 3

She & Him, the media-conquering twee Etsy-pop megastar duo of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, are about a week away from releasing Volume 3, their third non-Christmas album.

She & Him – “I Could’ve Been Your Girl”

Even though she's deep into her media-takeover all-platforms assault, Zooey Deschanel somehow found the time to get back together with M. Ward and record another She & Him album. Volume 3 arrives next month, and we posted its first single "Never Wanted Your Love." Now, they've also shared the shimmering Etsy-pop lament "I Could've Bee… More »

She & Him – “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” Video

Zooey Deschanel came in at No. 7 on the list of Your Top 20 Indie Rock Crushes Of 2012, probably the most hotly debated of any Gummy Awards category this year. And based on the comments I read, Deschanel was the most divisive figure on that list. I guess I can see why: She's got… More »
