Did Zooey Deschanel have “crazy coke eyes” on David Letterman’s show on Friday (April 2)? We’ll leave it up to Hipster Runoff to answer that important question, but it’s unlikely the actress/musician and M. Ward care too much now they’re bona fide pop stars—current album Volume Two has just entered the Billboard album chart at No. 6.
It’s likely that Deschanel was just nervous and overwhelmed by all the attention, but she’s still in fine voice on this version of “In the Sun,” which also gives her a chance to plink away at a Fender Rhodes piano. “Lovely,” says Letterman at the close of the song, which just about sums it up.
