She & Him, the very twee, folk duo of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward have shared two new tracks or, really, two versions of the same new track. The gender swapped love songs “She Gives Her Love To Me” and “He Gives His Love To Me” are both tender, precious ballads over country horns and acoustic guitar, with Deschanel giving a dreamy lounge room act performance.
The two songs are part of MGM’s Universal Love project, an ongoing compilation series that released its first EP earlier in the month and features various artists making wedding songs that are gender-inclusive for artists and listeners of any identity. She & Him’s contribution is their first release together since 2016’s holiday album Christmas Party. Listen to the two songs below.
