For the holiday season, She & Him—Zooey Deschanel (She) & M. Ward (Him)—are celebrating the 10th-anniversary of their holiday album A Very She & Him Christmas with the release of a special anniversary edition.
Originally released in October 2011, A Very She & Him Christmas was the duo’s third album and marked their first adventure into the wonderful world of holiday music birthing a now-classic. The new, limited-edition deluxe reissue sees the pair look to the 1980s for inspiration. A Very She & Him Christmas deluxe is pressed on tinsel silver vinyl and includes a brand-new 7-inch, also on silver vinyl, that features a dazzling version of Madonna’s “Holiday” and a cover of Wham!’s “Last Christmas,” as well as a bonus download of their beautiful take on “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas,” the Meredith Wilson classic popularized by Perry Como and Bing Crosby in 1951. The 7-inch can also be purchased separately on evergreen vinyl. Pre-order the album here.
She & Him will also head on tour in December, including two hometown shows at Los Angeles’ Theater At The Ace Hotel. Tickets go on sale Friday, September 24, sign up for presale tickets starting Wednesday, September 22 at sheandhim.com. One dollar from each presale ticket will be donated to Baby 2 Baby.
A Very She & Him Christmas has grown in popularity every Christmastime since its release, finding itself in high rotation alongside kindred spirits like A Christmas Gift for You, A Charlie Brown Christmas, and classic holiday albums by The Beach Boys, The Carpenters, and Elvis Presley. Ever since the album was first released in 2011, She & Him have donated a portion of sales from the album to 826 National, a non-profit for young people to ignite and channel their creativity, explore identity, advocate for themselves and their community, and achieve academic and professional success. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been donated to date, and She & Him are proud to continue that initiative with this reissue.
