She & Him Set Release Date for 'Classics,' Share Cover of Dusty Springfield's "Stay Awhile"
We knew that sometime this fall She & Him would be paying tribute to pop standards on their upcoming covers album Classics. And while many of the album details have remained under wraps, we finally now know when the adorable duo of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward will give us said album: December 2 for their new label home Columbia Records. As an added bonus, they also shared a brand new cover off the collection.

If you head over to She & Him's website and tune the radio to 1202 AM, you'll hear the duo's version of Dusty Springfield's "Stay Awhile." They do their best to make the song seem like a genuine '60s production, giving it a warm wall of sound arrangement with purring harmonies, twangy guitar leads and horns aplenty.

Go here to listen.

Below, watch a newly unveiled trailer for Classics, which also uses "Stay Awhile." The new album was recorded with a 20-piece orchestra.
