Set for release on 22nd July on Fantasy Records, She & Him - aka Zooey Deschanel & M. Ward - have announced their seventh studio album, a tribute to Brian Wilson, ‘Melt Away: A Tribute To Brian Wilson’.

“In the spring of 2020, we started a list of our favorite Brian songs — a very long list,” the duo explain. “We chose songs without any regard to their chart performance. The obscure ones hit us just as hard as the more popular songs — and all are ripe for re-imagining, re-interpreting, and re-inventing. Brian writes songs of beauty and loneliness and vulnerability better than anyone — and by sequencing them next to popular songs of confidence and love and fun, it creates a more complete picture of life on earth.”

“Zooey and Matt did such mind-blowing versions of our songs,” Brian Wilson adds. “The harmonies are beautiful and right on. I love this record!”
