Watch She & Him ‘Stay A While’ On ‘The Tonight Show’
The duo played the Dusty Springfield song off of their upcoming cover album
She & Him dropped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night to play a smooth and retro cut off of their upcoming cover album, Classics. Zooey Deschanel (She) and M. Ward (Him) performed Dusty Springfield’s “Stay Awhile” with a little help from the Roots, and, impressively, managed to make the 50-year-old song seem fresh and bubbly while remaining undeniably of its age. It’s exactly the type of sound the pair is aiming for on their first album since singing with major record label Columbia. They also shared another song on Thursday morning — a cover of Frank Sinatra’s “Time After Time,” which expertly showcases Deschanel’s smokey voice. Classics is due out December 2, but you can check out their Tonight Show appearance above, and their take on Ol’ Blue Eyes’ tune below.
