Classics is the fifth studio album by She & Him, a collaboration between M. Ward and actress Zooey Deschanel. It was released by Columbia Records on December 2, 2014. The album features 13 covers of classic songs, recorded live and accompanied by a 20-piece orchestra. This time the duo covers some great classic songs previously recorded by Dusty Springfield, Frank Sinatra, and Willie Nelson including "Stay Awhile," "Oh No, Not My Baby," and "Unchained Melody."
"The warm, vintage pop, jazz, and country that Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward have always seemed so smitten with comes to life on Classics...the songs are well-dressed and very easy on the ears. Classics is meant to be pure entertainment and even though most of these songs have been sung before by a variety of other artists, in the hands of She & Him, it comes off less like a novelty and instead sits very comfortably in their growing catalog of fine releases." -Timothy Monger, allmusic.com
