She & Him ready new album+summer tour

Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward – will release their third album of original material, Volume 3, on Merge Records on May 7 and the following week in UK/Europe. The duo hit the road for a month-long tour this summer (see the full list of tour dates below).
With fourteen songs – 11 Deschanel originals and three covers (including U2) Volume 3 was produced by Ward and features guest contributions from NRBQ’s Joey Spampinato, Mike Watt, Tilly and the Wall, Pierre de Reeder from Rilo Kiley, and Tom Hagerman from Devotchka.

Since the release of the band’s album Volume Two in 2010, Deschanel's TV show New Girl made her a sitcom star as she continued to hone her songwriting skills, pend the show's theme song and got nominated for a Grammy for Best Original Song for the movie Winnie the Pooh.
She wrote songs for Volume 3 during downtime while filming New Girl, as Ward toured behind his latest solo CD, A Wasteland Companion, released to critical acclaim last year. Together and separately, the duo has sold over a million albums domestically.
