She & Him released Classics earlier this week (via Columbia) — their appropriately titled record of new takes on old standards.

The duo of M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel aren't done revamping the oldies-but-goodies yet, though. This week's episode of Deschanel's sitcom The New Girl featured their rendition of the Beach Boys' "God Only Knows."

She & Him manage to keep the retro vibes in tact, offering up sugary melodies from Deschanel, while Ward handles the instrumentation. Hear their version of the pop classic below.
