Listen To New She And Him Track ‘Never Wanted Your Love’

Zooey Deschanel’s hit TV show, New Girl, was just renewed for a third season, bangs and all, but the actress-cum-singer still finds time for friends. In particular, friend M. Ward; together the pair performs under the moniker She and Him, a charming pop act that you want to hate on principal, but somehow always find yourself resisting the urge to sing along to.

Well, good news for you to secretly mull over: She and Him have just released the first track from their forthcoming album, Volume 3. “Never Wanted Your Love” is not much of a departure from the duo’s time-tested formula. It’s a jaunty little number, with Deschanel’s distinct Loretta Lynn-meets-a thrift store beaded cardigan vocals warbling above a happy melody. Listen below. She and Him will embark on a two-month tour in support of the new album; those dates are also listed below.
